Beginning-of-Life Ethics with Professor Ron Green
Recorded March 4, 2009
Just because we can make genetic choices for our babies, does it mean we should? Ronald Green, a religion professor and Dartmouth’s Eunice and Julian Cohen Professor for the Study of Ethics and Human Values, thinks that technology has an important role to play in reproductive medicine and in stem cell research. In this podcast, he talks about his thoughts on implementing guidelines in this realm and about his book, Babies by Design: The Ethics of Genetic Choice (2007, Yale University Press), issued in paperback in Nov. 2008.
