  • Description
  • Details

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."

What limits the genetic choices parents make for their children? Is it okay to select the sex of our children, or for deaf parents to select deaf children? In this second edition of Genetic Dilemmas, Davis argues that parental reproductive autonomy should be limited by respect for the future autonomy of the children created by these measures.
