The Case Against Designer Babies: The Politics and Ethics of
Human Germline Manipulation
Sunday, December 5, 1:00-5:00 pm, Sociology Department Commons,
402 Barrows Hall, UC Berkeley.
The workshop presentation will summarize the formal ethical
on human cloning and germline engineering, and update participants
on the escalating campaign to promote these technologies.
The main focus of the presentation and the discussion that
will be on articulating and developing a political framework
opposing human germline manipulations. We will consider where
how to draw the lines that matter, and how to embed opposition
to germline engineering in a commitment to equality and democracy.
Registrants will receive a detailed agenda and logistics information.

technologies of human genetic engineering, are available
