Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 16 (6):613-619 (1991)

Abstract
The line between Germ-Line genetic therapy and somatic cell is more and more difficult to discern. With new abilities to effect Germ-Line genetic therapy it is less clear why such therapy should not be undertaken. Nonetheless, questions persist as to who is the patient in such therapy and about the extent of discretion that should be allowed prospective parents and the physician/researcher.
