Think Christianly: Genetic Testing Gets Personal

Genetic Testing Gets Personal

Genetics. Fascinating, but doesn't affect me right? Wrong. In a Washington Post Article in March, Genetics gets real personal. And we need to know about this and speak to it from a Christian worldview that affirms the dignity of human persons. When a market economy meets genetics, things could get out of hand--and quick--when it comes to your genetic information.

Good news though. Congress did pass a a bill barring genetic discrimination (see article in Scientific American). But how this will be enforced and regulated will be vital.

A great book, from a Christian perspective on these kinds of issues, is Biotechnology and the Human Good.
