Many people around the world are treated unethically when it comes to the medical services they seek. As a group of determined students reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, we realized that biomedical ethics should be taught in schools to teach students about unethical medical cases which will allow them to understand and realize the bad outcomes they caused. Bioethics looks at the questions about values and what matters in medicine, biological research, and care of people who cannot speak up for themselves (which includes the severely mentally ill, small children, prisoners).

The goal of this petition is for students to learn about biomedical ethics in secondary school.  Specifically, grade 11 biology classes (because they learn about genetics) should have a bioethics unit which should be divided into three sub-units: history, medical discrimination today, and medical laws surrounding bioethics.

By signing this petition you will hopefully help impact the youth's understanding of bioethics and therefore also decrease unethical medical practices!
