Title Details
Sorting Society by Skene, Loane & Janna Thompson, eds.
Sorting Society: The Ethics of Genetic Screening and Therapy
by Skene, Loane & Janna Thompson, eds.
 
The 'sorting society' expresses what many people believe will be the outcome of advances in genetic technology: a society in which many characteristics of children are no longer the result of genetic chance but of deliberate selection. This book focuses on the ethical, legal and social issues raised by this technology. Is the prospect of a sorting society something that we should welcome or deplore? Do concerns about how parents or societies might exercise the choice given to them by genetic technology give us reason to restrain its creation or use? Would a sorting society increase the freedom of parents and the well being of children, or would it undermine values that are central to a liberal democratic society? These are questions of the most profound significance, bearing on the world in which our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will live. This is a must-read for everyone interested in the forefront of genetics and bioethics.
