Abstract

Featuring an overview of the Reprogenetics field's history (including lessons to be learned from eugenics), comparisons of international and domestic governmental regulations, and discussions of how the market and public opinion affect research, this book considers both the risks and the benefits of combining genetic and reproductive technologies. From the cloning of Dolly the sheep a decade ago to more recent advances in embryonic stem cell research, new genetic technologies have often spurred polemical, ill-informed debates. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in the field of reproductive genetics, where difficult bioethical issues are distilled into sound bites and far-fetched claims for easy public consumption. The underlying complexities of reprogenetic research and practice are often drowned out by the noise. In this thoughtful and informed collection, Lori P. Knowles and Gregory E. Kaebnick bring together bioethicists from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom to examine the ethical and policy quandaries created by new genetic technologies. Featuring an overview of the field's history (including lessons to be learned from eugenics), comparisons of international and domestic governmental regulations, and discussions of how the market and public opinion affect research, this book considers both the risks and the benefits of combining genetic and reproductive technologies.Concluding with a cautionary call for increased regulation, Reprogenetics introduces fact, history, and reason into a public discussion of complex and vexing issues.

Abstract

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.

Abstract

Voilà plus de 30 ans que l'on congèle sperme, ovocytes, embryons humains. Des CECOS (Centre d'études et de conservation des oeufs et du sperme humain) ont été créés pour cela. Leur mise en place, leurs questionnements éthiques, les valeurs qu'ils veulent ou non promouvoir (gratuité, anonymat), illustrent le fort impact de la médicalisation de notre société. Les gamètes détachés du corps permettent d'espérer une paternité/maternité ultérieure, et en cas de cancer un tel espoir peut contribuer à la volonté de guérir, mais suscitent également des fantasmes de maîtrise, voire d'immortalité. L'ouvrage donne la parole aux acteurs de la première génération de CECOS et prend acte des grands défis issus de ces mutations de la société au contact des biotechnologies.

Abstract

Drawing on postmodernist analyses, this volume presents a feminist investigation into the marginalization of women within western discourse that denies both female moral agency and embodiment. With reference to contemporary and historical issues in biomedicine, the book argues that the boundaries of both the subject and the body are no longer secure. The aim is to suggest that "leakiness" may be the very ground for a postmodern feminist ethic. The contribution made by this study is to go beyond modernist feminisms to radically displace the mechanisms by which women are devalued. The anxiety that postmodernism cannot yield an ethics, nor advance feminist concerns is addressed.
