Designer Babies? A Public Show Debate

Should we prohibit the genetic enhancement of fetuses? UWO's Debate Society and Students for Partners in Health have collaborated to hold a show debate for the public because we want students to be informed on the ethical implications of one of the most important medical science topics of our future.

Debate Motion: "In a world where genetic technologies allow for the modification of fetuses for traits like strength and intelligence, this house would prohibit the genetic enhancement of fetuses."

The event features:

When: January 26, 2017
Time: 6:00 p.m.
