Ethically Challenged

Jonathan Mills
'What would happen if the reigns of progress slipped from our hands?'
-Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake

From stem cell technology and genetic screening to new reproductive possibilites—the unprecedented developments in science are among the most contentious issues of our times.
In this second volume of The Alfred Deakin Debate, a leading surgeon, lawyer, ethicist, religious leader and two scientists pose crucial questions about the future we face. These incisive and wide-ranging essays explore the ethical decisions we must make and ask the question: what must we protect about our humanity for future generations?
Contributors: Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Emeritus Professor Miles Little, Cardinal George Pell, Dr Margaret Somerville, Douglas Hilton and Sir Gustav Nossal.
