Davis' discussion covers genetic ethics, as well as the ethics of parenthood. The author advances an ethical theory that can guide health care professionals, policy makers and parents when the rights and interests of parents collide with those of their "potential children" or children. Davis addresses four ethical issues in genetics, including disabled parents who seek assistance in conceiving a child who shares their disability; genetic testing of children with no immediate medical benefit; sex selection and determination of fetal sex; and the cloning of human beings.
For anyone interested in a guide through this uncharted ethical terrain, Davis' book is a place to look.
