Discussing HUGO: The German Debate on the Ethical Implications of the Human Genome Project
Ach, Johann S.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1998 Jun; 23(3): 324-333.
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.
