Medical Ethics 2: Assisted Reproduction (IVF)

A powerpoint that explores assisted reproduction, specifically IVF (AIH and AID). It includes religious responses to the issue, which can be used in a variety of ways (as a treasure hunt or group exercise).
Learning questions include:
What is IVF? (AIH and AID)
What are some Religious Responses to it?
Learn a case study and consider if IVF is ethical?
Case studies include Octomom, with a youtube video link included, to explore IVF at its extremes and help students evaluate how different situations may alter their opinions on how ethical it is.

The exercises are differentiated by outcome, and groupings can be done using a kagan system of mixed ability.

Side note: My preference with the religious responses exercise is to number the class 1-5, have them study, condense and write one opinion. I then re-number them 1-4 and have them sit in new groups, so each new grouping has at least one person from each of the 5 previous groups. They then teach each other all the information.
