Looks at human developmental gene modification, sometimes termed germ-line gene therapy. Identifies specific dangers for women and for their children where genetic modification of human embryos or fetuses is pursued. Also presents an important gender analysis, pointing out that this kind of genetic experimentation is reliant on the powerful desire and expectation that women will do anything for their children.
