The fictional case study presented here is not based on one case, but is actually based on several cases. College students enrolled in a bioethics course for non-majors wrote it. The case entails the thought processes and decision-making involved in order to save one child suffering from a genetic disorder by producing another child, a "designer baby." Nursing majors from a freshmen level college General Biology course participated in the suggested activities. (Contains 7 figures and 2 tables.)
