Discussing Hugo: The German debate on the ethical implications of the human genome project

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 23 (3):324 – 333 (1998)
The current German criticism of HUGO centers around the term ‘human dignity’; consenquentialist and autonomy-based arguments are used. The debate culminates in questioning the integrity of bioethics as a scholarly discipline and has created a heterogeneous coalition of disparate political and social groups that oppose any research that would facilitate genetic pre-selection of human characteristics
