Abstract

David DeGrazia’s Creation Ethics is a fascinating effort to present a consistent account of creation in many contexts — from reproduction, to self-creation through genetic enhancement, to the creation of entire future generations. For reasons of space, this comment addresses the related discussions of bearing children in wrongful life cases (chapter 5) and bearing children with disadvantages (chapter 6).
