Is all fair in biological warfare? The controversy over genetically engineered biological weapons
Appel, Jacob M., 1973-
Journal of Medical Ethics 2009 July; 35(7): 429-432
Advances in genetics may soon make possible the development of ethnic bioweapons that target specific ethnic or racial groups based upon genetic markers. While occasional published reports of such research generate public outrage, little has been written about the ethical distinction (if any) between the development of such weapons and ethnically neutral bioweapons. The purpose of this paper is to launch a debate on the subject of ethnic bioweapons before they become a scientific reality.
