BIO34: Human Heredity and Evolution EXTRA CREDIT Paper Prompt 

Roughly 10-years have passed since The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was published. With regard to legal rights and property claims, there has been some progress towards laws and guidelines regarding using patients’ tissues for research and commercial endeavors. However, there are still many areas of ambiguity in the laws and regulations towards using patients’ cells and/or tissues.

 Find a recent example in the news that relates to issues of informed consent, property rights, and patients’ rights that were discussed in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. A “recent” example can include ANY stories and/or events that have occurred after the publishing of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks in 2009, after which the public became more aware of the issues presented in the book. 

Please write a 3-page (double-spaced) paper in which you: 

1. Summarize the selected example, providing the Appropriate Citation of the news article(s) in which you learned about the event and/or case being reported on.

 2. Provide an analysis in which you compare-and-contrast how the ethical problems were addressed in a manner differently OR similarly than the case with HeLa cells. 

3. Provide a concluding argument about whether you think adequate improvements are in the progress of being made towards the issues of consent and/or property rights regarding the use of patient’s tissues, or if there are still notable deficiencies in how we deal with these matters. 

You must cite AT LEAST one article that brings up the “recent” example, so you can compare it to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The source can be primary or secondary, but must be from a legitimate source (i.e., not just Wikipedia, you need the actual link). If you use additional articles or sources to support your paper, also cite them as needed at the end of the paper. 

PLEASE NOTE: citations do NOT count to the 3-page limit (i.e., do not give me a 2-page reference list attached to a 1-page paper).
