Debating the Benefits and ConcernsBook - 2001
A sheep named Dolly was born from tissue taken from her mother's udder. This Australian sheep made international news because--if sheep could be cloned, could humans be far behind? In GENETIC ENGINEERING: DEBATING THE BENEFITS AND CONCERNS, author Karen Judson tackles these ethical issues, and many more. Judson explores the history and future of genetic research, including the possibility that understanding genetics will lead to cures for hereditary diseases. She also discusses the downside--that employers and insurance companies might discriminate against people whose genetic history indicates they are at risk for hereditary diseases.
