Gerhard Shroder Rejects Human Genetic Manipulation

In an article on German reactions to the legalization of euthanasia in
the Netherlands, the New York Times comments that "so-called bio-politics
are currently under intense review" in Germany. In that context, it
quotes a recent statement by Chancellor Gerhard Schroder: "We agree on
what we do not want: the cloned, optimized, genetically selected human
being." ("Horror Expressed in Germany Over Dutch Euthanasia," New York
Times, April 12).
