Genetic Crossroads
October 16th, 2000

"What can happen when the technology used in support of
genetic thinking is not the crude technology of shackles
and slave ships, of showers that pour lethal gas and of
mass ovens, or even the technology of surgical sterilization,
but the fabulous, fantastic, extraordinary technology of
the new genetics itself?. . .My children will not be led to
genetic technology in chains and shackles, or crowded into
cattle cars. It will be offered to them."

--Barbara Katz Rothman, sociologist, City University
of New York, "A Sociological Skeptic in the Brave
New World," Gender & Society (v12 n5, October 1998)
