'The importance of the Human Genome Project lies less in what it may, in fact, reveal about biology . . . than in its validation and reinforcement of biological determinism as an explanation of all social and individual variation', Lewontin, 1992, 34. See also Jonas, 1976 and 1984; and a counter-argument by Charlesworth, 1990, 180-189. Theological perspectives are introduced by Lammers and Peters, 1990, 869; Meilaender, 1990; Ramsey, 1970; and Mitcham and Grote, 1984.

Bazelon advocates the establishment of comprehensive regulatory law to address these concerns, rather than depending on common law and judicial innovation to answer the society's need for adjudication of conflicts: 'damages must be addressed through regulation to prevent harm rather than litigation to redress it. Control of such risks cannot be left to the ad hoc value of judges through possibly inconsistent determinations at trial', Bazelon, 1986, 78.
