Title: The New Eugenics: The Case Against Genetically Modified Humans
Author(s): Darnovsky, Marcy
Keywords: Population policy
Genetic engineering
Date: 2000
Series/Report no.: DifferenTakes
Issue Paper 4
Abstract: At the cusp of dot-com frenzy and the biotech century, a group of influential scientists and pundits has begun zealously promoting a new bio-engineered utopia. In the world of their visionary fervor, parents will strive to afford the latest genetic ”improvements” for their children. According to the advocates of this human future (or, as some term it, ”post-human” future), the exercise of consumer preferences for offspring options will be the prelude to a grand achievement: the technological control of human evolution.
