Building Athletes with “Gene Doping”
Visit page 260 of your textbook and read the excerpt from Play True on “Gene Doping.”
Is gene doping unethical? If the use of performance-enhancing drugs is unethical, should gene doping also be considered unethical? Would the widespread practice of gene doping be morally permissible? How would it change the way we normally view exceptional athletic performance? Would the availability of genetic enhancement techniques divide society into two unequal classes of rich enhanced people and less well-off unenhanced people? Should scientific research into genetic enhancement be banned? Why or why not?
