As part of the 2008 Ethics Lecture series, Dr. Gregory Pence will deliver a lecture entitled, "Why Not Enhance Humans?" on March 10, 2008. He will argue that despite fears of alarmists and religion, biological choices that enhance exist on the present continuum of choice and already operate in medicine, and that the challenge for ethics is not to ban choices about enhancement but to insure they are made in the best interest of the child.
Dr. Spence has taught at the University of Alabama medical school for 30 years, where he is Course Director for Medical Ethics. His research focuses on emerging ethical issues in medicine, including cloning, genetics, and issues at both ends of life. He has also written books and journal articles on ethical issues.
In conjunction with the lecture, we have compiled a bibliography consisting of books, journal articles and websites on the speaker.
