  • Are you looking for current events when bioethics are being challenged, or just topics in general? Here's a quick Google search of bioethics topics.


    http://depts.washington.edu/bioethx/topics/index.html


    Of those topics, I would say that "Resource Allocation" is a hotly contended issue with ObamaCare being front and center!


    Resource Allocation includes the following (from the link):


    * what rules guide rationing decisions?


    *are there ethical criteria for making triage decisions?


    * can I make allocation decisions based on judgements about "quality of life?"


    * what about "macro-allocation" concerns?


    * can we ethically qualify a "right to health care?"  (my personal favorite!)
