of reproductive health, c) Teenager dignity and abuse (physical and psychological), d) Bioethical dilemmas in drug abuse (Garza 2000, Polaino-lorente 2000).

4.  Preservation and Conservation of life.  It is extremely important for the student to have a concept of life (animals and plants) as a natural gift from a Bioethical point of view.  The goal is to reinforce thinking and reflection about love and respect towards living beings, their conservation and preservation (Otte 2000).

The value of life from beginning to end. The Bioethical values evaluated here are:  Love towards life (animals and plants), Beneficence, and avoidance of Mischievous acts (Mainetti 2000, Di Pietro 1998).

The topics are:  

a) The influence of science in the conservation of life, b) Cloning, c) Euthanasia, d) Student’s risk behavior (early unwanted pregnancy, abortion risk,  teenager’s death), e) Cases of Bioethical dilemmas, f)  Ecological destruction.  The didactical techniques used were:  Dialogue-discussion and demonstrative.

5. Diagnosis and Treatment of Dilemmas:  This chapter shows the problems the teenager has to confront in different environments:  school, family, social, etc.  It also deepens into the situations that lower his/her school achievement and the causes that lead him/her to drop out or get involved in delinquency. The causes of drop outs are analyzed as well as a possible solution.

We suggest that Bioethics can reinforce the education of ethics in Mexican teenagers.  It also orients youth towards protective decisions that would keep them away from negative behavior.  Such course would include the  following topics: 1. Introduction to Bioethics, 2. Awareness of social surroundings, 3.  Feeling respect towards human dignity, 4.  Conservation and Preservation of Life,  5.  Treatment and  diagnosis of Bioethical Dilemmas. (See appendix for the content of these courses).
