Summary
"Surely parents owe it to their children to give them the best life they can? Increasingly we are able to reduce the number of babies born with disabilities and disorders. But there is a powerful new challenge to conventional thinking about the desirability of doing so: it comes from those who actually have these conditions. They call into question the very definition of disability; how do we justify trying to avoid bringing people like them into being?" "Jonathan Glover also examines the emotive idea of 'eugenics', and the ethics of attempting to enhance people genetically for non-medical reasons. Should parents be free to choose, for instance, the colour of their children's eyes or hair? This is no longer a distant prospect, but an existing power which we cannot wish away. What impact will such interventions have, both on the individuals concerned and on society as a whole? Is there a central core of human nature with which we must not interfere?" "This book is written for anyone who cares about the rights and wrongs of parents' choices for their children, indeed for anyone concerned about the future of humanity."--Jacket
