This lesson is focused around a case study created by julia
omarzu with the Department of Psychology at loras College in
dubuque, iowa.  The case study addresses the moral, ethical
and medical issues surrounding the treatment for a young girl
suffering from a rare genetic disorder called fanconi anemia. 
The case study is written as a scripted discussion between medical
and biotech professionals in regards to the processes, risks and
ethical concerns surrounding the use of  genetic diagnosis,
stem cells and in-vitro fertilization. Students will be asked
to respond to the ethical issues from the perspective of one of the
seven characters from the case study as well as given an
opportunity to share their personal opinions..
