Heritable Genome Editing and Equality - 3-4 March 2023
Title: “Heritable Genome Editing and Equality”
Date: 3-4 March 2023
Location: Waldegrave Drawing Room, St Mary’s University
“Heritable genetic modifications, which seek to change the entire genetic heritage of a human being and all his or her possible descendants, are increasingly being considered in biomedicine. But a risk now exists that eugenic ideology may return and that the lives of some children may be considered as unworthy of life. Thus, it is necessary to examine whether such modifications may undermine the present equality and coherence of civilised society.
The Centre of Bioethics and Emerging Technologies at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, is delighted to host this international conference in partnership with the Scottish Council for Human Bioethics.”
