The rights of the child in the Era of the Biotechnologies

Genetic Inherance: future people & future worlds

In 1978, Louise Brown was born via IVF, then a new and unregulated technology. Her birth was followed by 12 years of debate in the UK  and resulted in a regulatory framework that facilitated the birth of 5 million babies worldwide..

In this lecture, philosopher John Harris will present his views on the ethical principles that should frame a well-regulated approach to gene editing in humans and animals and on the moral dangers of undue caution and delay in introducing new technologies.
