You are a governmental science policy adviser, and you learn about a new technique being developed that promises to predict IQ accurately based on a particular combination of genetic markers. You also learn that this technique could potentially be applied to preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), so parents would be able to select an embryo for implantation that is free of a genetic disorder and one that is likely to be relatively smart. What policy recommendations would you make concerning this technology? Do you think parents should have the right to choose any characteristic of their children, or should PGD be limited to ensuring that embryos are free of genetic disorders? Should guidelines be imposed to regulate this process, or should it be banned?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The policy recommendations that should be made in concern with the technology of preimplantation genetic diagnosis.

Introduction: A new technique has been developed that promises to predict IQ accurately based on a particular combination of genetic markers. This technique can be applied to preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Parents would be able to select an embryo free of genetic disorder and one with the smarter brain with the aid of this technology.

Explanation of Solution

The job of a governmental science policy adviser is to offer opinions and suggestions to individuals upon the request.

The policy recommendations required concerning this technology are as follows:

  • • The parents should not hold the company liable for any type of results whether right or wrong...
