Description: Access to genetic technology has increased rapidly over the last few years, and patients, ethicists, physicians and policy makers are increasingly forced to make quick case decisions on previously uncharted ethical ground. Genetic Dilemmas can give us an understanding of the options and consequences of new genetic "choices".

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.
