CGS, a “progressive” but uber conservative-minded advocacy group that opposes many medical technology innovations is continuing its campaign against gene therapy on the grounds that changing a person’s DNA coding is a ‘violation’ of ethical principles, claiming it should be “off limits”. It’s a classic precautionary argument rooted in an almost pre-genetic understanding of science.

The GLP featured this article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis. The viewpoint is the author’s own. The GLP’s goal is to stimulate constructive discourse on challenging science issues.
