Faith And Ethics In Genome Sequencing

Technological advances in the past year alone have made it faster and cheaper to read a person's DNA, providing great advantages when diagnosing rare maladies or predispositions to diseases that might occur later. All of this raises ethical questions, however, about what to report, how to share information, how to use the new knowledge, when to test and who should have access to the information. In an 8-minute news video prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a cutting-edge source for reporting and analyzing religion news, correspondent Lucky Severson explores the ethics involved in DNA sequencing through case stories of children and families affected by both maladies and new knowledge about the genetics behind maladies. The video makes an excellent starting point for a discussion about medical ethics.
