For the past few years I have been very intrigued by ethics discussions-on all topics. Obviously the topic of prematurity-as it relates to ethics-is close to my heart.
I would like to start hosting a series of ethical discussions. I don't know how often I will be posting in the series. I guess it will depend on all of you.
First I am asking that we try, as best as possible, to keep the discussion civil. I've learned a lot about people and various topics through ethical discussions. This is my hope here. If we snap at each other or make it too personal, it won't work. I realize that arguing your point is normal in these types of discussions, but putting one another down or assuming there is a hidden agenda will defeat the purpose. The topics won't be easy to read or respond to at times. If you are feeling vulnerable-please don't enter into the discussion. Prematurity can leave a person raw at times. It is these times when it is best to come back to my blog during another discussion and leave the ethical topics for another time.
Secondly, leave your deity at the door. If we make the discussion about (insert your belief here) then it would not be a valuable ethics discussion, as everyones beliefs (or lack thereof) are different.
Lastly, if you would like to write a question for a future ethics topic, please email me at thepreemieexperiment.blogspot.com
In a day or so (when my sick child goes back to school) I will post the first topic in the series.
First up will be Chris (Chris and Vic).
