This book tackles the major issues of what has been loosely named 'The New Biology.' Contemporary advances in biotechnology and medical science are creating untold opportunities for not only biological or human engineering, but eugenic advancement as well as preconceptual and prenatal diagnosis-through genetic screening-of genetic diseases. While these new technologies have the ability to shape life even before it begins, they sadly often prolong it past the time it should have a dignified ending. George P. Smith discusses the challenges and the socio-legal, ethical, medical, philosophical, and political constructs involved in the decision making process.
