9780340848357: Designer Babies: Where Should We Draw the Line (Debating Matters)

Science fiction has been preoccupied with technologies to control the characteristics of our children since the publication of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World". Current arguments about "designer babies" almost always demand that lines should be drawn and regulations tightened. But where should regulation stop and patient choice in the use of reproductive technology begin? In this book, five contributors set out their arguments. In this text, contrasting approaches to this topical and contentious question are presented by various specialists on the subject. The Institute of Idea's mission is to expand the boundaries of public debate through organizing conferences, discussions and salons, and publishing written conversations and exchanges in a hope to play a part in shaking up a culture that seems to shy away more and more from confrontation and the clash of ideas. This series aims to present thought-provoking arguments.
