The problem of additional health-related diseases will arise in the prison
system. There will be more HIV, more tuberculosis, and other communicable
diseases. Pick a position on the question of mapping inmates for genetic
predisposition to a specific disease and whether inmates should have the same
rights in regard to this topic as the general public.
Within the Discussion Board area, write up to 3 paragraphs that respond to
the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive
and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:
Should the prison system also map inmates that have these types of diseases?
The general public has raised an outcry about insurance companies that
follow persons who may have a genetic predisposition to a specific disease
stating that it would violate their constitutional rights. Should the prisoners
also have these rights? Why or why not?
What reasons might correctional institutions have to map these inmates?
