Genetic Disability, Experience and the Sorting Society
30th January 2019
Introduction to blog article:
“Are we heading towards a future where genetic conditions are ‘screened-out’? Who gets to decide which conditions are screened for? What would be the impacts for people already living with those conditions? Dr Felicity Boardman, associate professor at the University of Warwick, argues that the views and experiences of people with genetic conditions are vital when considering these questions.
Felicity joined us last month to present her research on the attitudes of people with genetic conditions towards screening. Here, she discusses her findings and the issues that society needs to face as we move into the era of genomic medicine.”
