This volume examines the social and ethical issues raised in genetic counselling, testing and screening. It includes contributions from health professionals engaged in genetic counselling as well as observers and critics from the fields of philosophy, law, biology and social science. The book therefore examines both the immediate questions raised by individual clients and the broader social implications of genetic counselling. The essays explore issues such as when genetic tests should be used to predict future health, when children should be tested for genetic disorders and how we should guard against possible abuses of genetic knowledge.
Contributors: David Ball, Caroline Berry, Paula Boddington, Don Bradley, Matthew Griffiths, Peter Harper, Helen Hughes, Abby Lippman, Jonathan Montgomery, Benno Muller-Hill, Evelyn Parsons, Maureen Ramsey, Lydia Sinclair, Audrey Tyler, Margaretha White-Van-Mourik, Ann Williams.
