Things to do for Bioethics:

1. Email Dr. Nobis the most recent draft of your Beckwith paper by 5 PM Sunday: nathan.nobis@gmail.com

2. Monday will be writing consult with Dr. Nobis and peer review day.

3. For Monday, also bring a list of characteristics of a good philosophy paper, developed from the Pryor article, Nobis's tips and any other guidelines on how to write a philosophy paper found online (or anywhere else): http://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+write+a+philosophy+paper&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a The purpose of this list is to evaluate your own paper in terms of whether it meets the requirements for a philosophy paper.

4. Wednesday, we will move onto the Mary Anne Warren article, "On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion." Copies of this were handout out Friday but it can also be found online via Google:
