Description

Genetics has a different impact on women than on men, especially with regard to reproduction and caregiving. Mahowald, a philosopher with long experience in medicine, analyses this impact from an egalitarian feminist perspective, covering access to genetic services, sex selection, misattributed paternity, prenatal testing, genetic interventions, genetic susceptibility to late onset disorders, genetic ties to offspring, behavioural genetics, and human cloning. This book is intended for bioethicists, medical geneticists, genetic counsellors, feminists.show more
