For example, with a topic of the ethics of euthanasia, either Philosopher's Index or HealthSource would be excellent choices, depending upon what you'd like to emphasize.

HealthSource will emphasize the medical point of view,  Philosopher's Index the philosophical point of view. 

Interested in the ethics of outsourcing?  Best bets:  Business Source Elite or Philosopher's Index. The ethics of genetic engineering?  General Science Full Text or Philosopher's Index
