Disability Rights Critique of Prenatal Genetic Testing

Genetic Crossroads
September 19th, 2000

A 22-page report titled "The Disability Rights Critique of Prenatal
Genetic Testing: Reflections and Recommendations," has been published
by the Hastings Center. The report, authored by Adrienne Asch and Erik
Parens, is based on a project that involved two years of meetings and
dialogue among disability rights activists, bioethicists, medical
geneticists, genetic counselors, physicians, and lawyers. The project
was funded by the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) section
of the National Institute for Human Genome Research. For copies, contact
