Full Description


As access to genetic technology increases, patients, ethicists, physicians and policy makers are forced to make quick case decisions on uncharted ethical ground. In "Genetic Dilemmas" Davis seeks to give us an understanding of the options and consequences of these new genetic "choices". Issues addressed include: disabled parents who seek assistance in conceiving a child who shares their disability; genetic testing of children with no immediate medical benefit; sex selection and determination of foetal sex; and the cloning of human beings.
