AbstractThe article focuses on liberal eugenics and human nature. The term "liberal eugenics" states that people should be able to choose genetic enhancements for their offspring. The human nature objection to technology states that a clear line can be drawn between what is natural and what is unnatural. The arguments against liberal eugenics claim that liberal eugenics and other radical genetic technologies such as cloning constitute a threat to humankind.
