  1. Explaining Differential Trust of DNA Forensic Technology: Grounded Assessment or Inexplicable Paranoia?Troy Duster - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (2):293-300.
    In the spring of 2005, the Portuguese government passed legislation paving the way for all residents to contribute their DNA to a national database to be used for medical and forensic purposes. There was no significant opposition. In sharp contrast, the United States will experience a contentious debate with strong opposition from many groups if and when such a law is proposed. Some of the reasons have to do with a history of sharply different experiences with, and trust of, the (...)

  • Forensic DNA databases: genetic testing as a societal choice.A. Patyn & K. Dierickx - 2010 - Journal of Medical Ethics 36 (5):319-320.
    In this brief report, the authors argue that while a lot of concerns about forensic DNA databases have been raised using arguments from biomedical ethics, these databases are used in a complete different context from other biomedical tools. Because they are used in the struggle against crime, the decision to create or store a genetic profile cannot be left to the individual. Instead, this decision is made by officials of a society. These decisions have to be based on a policy (...)
