Chapter Summary

This chapter considers invented traditions in the genomic era. It focuses on disability-related practices, specifically, genetic manipulations that are carried out in fetuses in utero and on preconception zygotes with the goal of bringing them to full maturation as human subjects. The chapter begins with a brief introduction to the new scientific technologies in the context of genetic manipulation and explains the relevance of disability-related practices to the study. It provides an examination of the right to procreative freedom and family autonomy that have been the leading arguments raised in this context. The chapter also focuses on the discussion on childrens bioethics. Different from research that has been conducted so far, here scientific developments from the point of view of the (future) children that are involved and in view of the childrens right to identity are examined.

Keywords: childrens bioethics; childrens right; disability-related practices; family autonomy; genetic manipulation
