Item description for Genetic Ethics: Do the Ends Justify the Genes? by John F. Kilner, Frank E. Young & Rebecca D. Pentz...
Fueled by rapid advances in the availability of genetic information and the capability to intervene in response to it, a genetic revolution is now underway that has profound implications for all spheres of life. But the ethical issues raised-and sometimes overlooked-by this revolution are glaring. This timely volume, written by scholars and practitioners at the forefront of genetic research-including Francis Collins, Elizabeth Thomson, C. Christopher Hook, Arthur Dyck, Allen Verhey, V. Elving Anderson, Marsha Fowler, and Charles Colson-will help readers assess from a Christian perspective the challenging ethical questions and difficult personal and social decision-making situations raised by today's genetic advancements.

Reviews - What do customers think about Genetic Ethics (Horizon in Bioethics Series)?
Horrible! Feb 19, 2007
Unfortunately, I did not read the fine print of this book. It is a christian based book with a huge bias. It does not address ETHICAL issues only religious arguments. I wish some of the authors would have been more educated on genetics and the field of genetic counseling, since it was evident that the authors were uneducated.
