Item Details

As the field of genetic engineering continues to develop, a host of new ethical dilemmas are created. Many ethicists believe that it is our moral duty to pursue the new genetic technologies for the benefit of mankind. Others see this tinkering with nature as ethically unacceptable. This text debates the central issues of genetic modification, including human cloning, genetically modified foods and altering the genes of our descendants.
