    Over the summer, I have been assigned to do a short presentation on a topic of controversial part of human science.
    I don't know what to do mine about... I've thought of plastic surgery (would that come under science?!) and the argument into whether we are born with intelligence.
    So yeah, if any of you TSR people could lend any ideas, I'd be so grateful! Thankyou.

    Oh, and I'm not allowed to do gene therapy or abortions because other people are doing that. Darn.

    I think Plastic Surgery is a discipline of Health/Medicine which in turn is a science so it should be okay

    Plenty of potential topics. Designer babies, GMOs, racial differences in intelligence, euthanasia, eugenics, life extension etc.

    Human experimentation and its controversies? Plenty of historical examples with extremely dubious ethics!
