Interested in bioethics, medicine, or the biosciences? Please join the BioLaw & Health Policy Society next Thursday, November 3, 12:45PM in Room 185 for a lunch talk with Professor Hank Greely about his new book, the The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction.

“Within twenty, maybe forty, years most people in developed countries will stop having sex for the purpose of reproduction. Instead, prospective parents will be told as much as they wish to know about the genetic makeup of dozens of embryos, and they will pick one or two for implantation, gestation, and birth. And it will be safe, lawful, and free. In this work of prophetic scholarship, Henry T. Greely explains the revolutionary biological technologies that make this future a seeming inevitability and sets out the deep ethical and legal challenges humanity faces as a result.”

Professor Hank Greely is the Director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences; Professor (by courtesy) of Genetics in the Stanford School of Medicine; Chair of the Steering Committee of the Center for Biomedical Ethics; and Director of the Stanford Program in Neuroscience and Society.

Please RSVP for lunch in Room 185 so we can order the appropriate amount of food.
