Doorways to Designer Babies? Judaic Ethics and Genetic Enhancement

January 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Presented by Rabbi Jonathan K. Crane, Ph.D.
Raymond F. Schinazi Scholar in Bioethics and Jewish Thought at Emory’s Center for Ethics

We are honored to welcome Rabbi Crane back to the Haberman Institute!

Every year scientific advancement and breakthroughs impact our society in new ways. Recent technologies like CRISPR open the doorways to “fixing” genetic “problems” before they arise and to “enhancing” future progeny. Of course, just because something is possible does not mean it should be done. So which doorway, if either, may we justifiably enter?

Join us online to delve into Judaic ethical concerns about each doorway.
