You will prepare a 5-page book review of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. This assignment will include a section that applies pertinent theory and peer-reviewed literature relevant to the issues raised by the book. This paper will be divided into sections. Instead of utilizing the UHD Writing Lab (which is a tremendous resource for writing assignments), you will be asked to submit sections 1, 2, 3 and your reference to date of your book review by a certain deadline. Your instructor will review and critique these sections offering numerous suggestions, comments and concerns that you will then incorporate into your final draft. Due dates for each version can be found below and in your syllabus. This paper should contain well-reasoned and thoughtful responses to the following issues: Section 1: Opening Summary This section should provide a thorough overview of the primary themes of the book so that someone who has not read the book will understand (basically) what the book is about. This should be no more than one paragraph. If this is your first paragraph, do not forget to include a thesis statement that outline what the reader can expect to learn should they continue reading. Section 2: Ethical Dilemma: Was it ethical to remove Henrietta’s cells for research? Recall the situation in which the doctor “picked up a sharp knife and shaved two dime-sized pieces of tissue from Henrietta’s cervix…” (Skloot, 2011, p. 233). Remember that these samples were taken in the name of research, not to treat her cancer. Use at least one ethics theory OR one healthcare principles to support your position on the question. 1. Clearly state the position. 2. Briefly define the ethics theory/healthcare principle used. 3. Describe how the theory/principle supports the position used. Section 3: Moral Question: Do the Means Justify the Ends? Consider the medical advances that occurred as the result of discovering HeLa cells. As before, use one ethics theory OR one healthcare principle to support your position. 1. Clearly state the position. 2. Briefly define the ethics theory/healthcare principle used. 3. Describe how the theory/principle supports the position argued Section 1, Section 2, Section 3 and reference list to date (in APA format) are due by April 4th as a first draft. These sections will be reviewed by your instructor who will offer comments, concerns and constructive critique to improve your writing. Section 4: Ethical Dilemma: Who Profits from Science? Provide an argument based on ethics theory or healthcare principles that the Lacks family should or should not be given financial compensation in return for use of HeLa cells. As before, use one ethics theory OR one healthcare principle to support your position. 1. Clearly state the position. 2. Briefly define the ethics theory/healthcare principle used. 3. Describe how the theory/principle supports the position argued Section 5: Ethical Dilemma: The Roles of Social Factors Consider how social factors/ethics concepts played a role in the events surrounding Henrietta’s cancer treatment, cell removal, and her family coming to terms with the contribution the cells made to medical sciences. Describe three specific events in the book, and how they each related to a social factor/ethics concept. You must use three different social factors/ethics concepts. Completed paper (all five sections to include recommended changes by instructor) is due by May 14thth as your final draft. Both drafts will be submitted via Turn it in to check for plagiarism. Reference List Entire paper to include in text citation and reference list should be in APA format. A successful paper will have the following characteristics: 1. You may not use first person (I or you) in this paper, nor should you disclose any personal experiences to illustrate your points. This paper should be written from a scholarly or professional perspective. 2. No bullets/numbering should be used. 3. The assignment should be presented in 12 point Times New Roman font with one-inch margins. 4. You should not plagiarize in any way on this assignment. All work must be yours alone. You may not use quotations from any source, whether accurately cited or not. Everything should be in your own words to reflect your own understanding of the material you have read. All information that you present that is not your own original thought must be appropriately cited in APA style with in-text citations and a reference page. Plagiarism and/or use of direct quotations (whether appropriated cited or not) will result in failure on the assignment and possibly in the class. 5. This paper must be submitted, as a MS Word document, to the appropriate Turn it in link in blackboard. Important Reminders: 1. The side of the issue being argued should be directly stated. For example, students can state that “based on (appropriate) theory/principle, the removal of cervical cancer cells from Henrietta lacks cervix is/is not ethically sound because…” 2. Be specific about the subtype and/or the person credited with ethical theory applied. For example, teleological theories include utilitarianism, which can be act or rule. Additionally, different forms of deontological theories have been credited to Immanuel Kant and John Rawls. 3. Remember that it is essential that you be internally consistent with your ethical arguments. For example, if you are arguing from a position of patient autonomy, then you must be consistent in applying the actual definition of autonomy to the book
