WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT

Genetic Crossroads
November 21st, 1999

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
debate

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
follows

will be on articulating and developing a political framework
for

opposing human germline manipulations. We will consider where
and

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.

To register, or for other information, contact Marcy Darnovsky

Briefing materials from the September 10 workshop, on the

technologies of human genetic engineering, are available

from Rich Hayes at Contact us.
