Everything I Know About Bioethics, I Learned from The Golden Girls
Picture it: New York, 2018. A swarthy, young bioethicist uses one of the greatest sitcoms of all time to illustrate the application of the principles of bioethics. Throughout its run from 1985-1992, The Golden Girls was truly ahead of its time, addressing numerous complex issues, including conceiving via in vitro fertilization, human enhancement, the HIV/AIDS epidemic and stigmatization, organ donation, sexual health, body modification, end-of-life issues, and cryopreservation. Join Dr. Elizabeth Yuko for an introduction to and discussion of bioethics through clips and case studies. Who better to learn about autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice from than Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia?
