Rethinking "liberal eugenics": Reflections and questions on Habermas on bioethics

Hastings Center Report 35 (6):31-42 (2005)
Abstract
: In the new "liberal eugenics," children could be genetically improved as long as the enhancements let children choose from among a wide range of ways to live their lives. The German political philosopher Jürgen Habermas has opened a debate with the proponents of this view. Habermas suggests that a person could not really regard her life as her own if she lived with a body that somebody else had, without asking her opinion, "enhanced" for her
