    Hi everyone! Welcome to this thread.

    So I've based my EPQ project about the moral and ethical issues that scientists and doctors face since I've found the AQA Biology sections on ethical issues of some topics very interesting.

    Please can you post information about new, updated ethical issues in medicine and science, this will not only help me with my project, but it will be useful for your knowledge which is useful in interviews and personal statements if you're applying for a similar type of course to Medicine.

    Everyone who wants to do medicine, this posting some of your Biology content on ethical issues can really help me and you out, any means would do so. In effect, this thread can be used to solidify your science revision!

    Feel free to post anything relevant!

    Really, is it for EPQ, or a subject or something. The topics all sound very interesting, especially euthanasia. Do you think if someone's in pain, you can allow them to end their life?

    If someone's quality of life is so bad they cannot do carry out ordinary daily activities, and there's no chance of improvement, then yes. If someone is really suffering, or if it's an inevitability in the future, then they should be allowed to avoid that

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
