This discussion group addresses many important topics regarding
the new human genetic technologies, from the perspective of
disabled people, and in general.
"Aim: Our aim is to form a worldwide network for the following
goals: 1) To increase the knowledge among disabled people of
bioethical issues. 2) To increase the dialog between disabled
people and members of other marginalized groups on bioethical
issues. 3) To increase the dialog between the marginalized and
`non marginalized' groups on bioethical issues. 4) To increase
the visibility of disabled people and other marginalized groups
in the field of bioethics and science in general with the hope
of promoting greater participation in decision-making processes
and decision-making bodies related to bioethical issues and
science in general. The coordinators are Christopher Newell
(Australia) and Gregor Wolbring (Canada)."
