  • Do you think genetic enhancement (particularly involving children) could be practiced ethically, or do you think there are deep ethical issues inherent in the desire to enhance human being genetically?
  • What concerns do you have about the practice, and what limits (if any) should be placed on it and the surrounding research?

Do you think that there is a reasonably possible danger of genetic enhancement reviving the project of eugenics as we saw in the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century?

What ethical issues do you see arising with the possibility of genetic enhancement?  Do you think that these ethical issues are to be addressed by the scientific and medical communities, or should society at large be handling these issues?
