Journey to Baby Gammy: How We Justify a Market in Children

Aug 18, 2014 by

By Rickard Newman, Public Discourse: Materialism, relativism, and consequentialism are at the heart of the arguments in favor of third-party reproduction.

When is genetic modification not genetic modification? When the Government decides it isn’t

Aug 15, 2014 by

By Philippa Taylor, CMF: Ministers know there is widespread public opposition to growing genetically modified (GM) crops in the UK, and will therefore appreciate that if more of the general public were aware that they are planning to allow GM babies to be created, using completely experimental techniques, there would be far more concern and opposition to it.
