Quote of the day: bioethics

“There’s enough evil and caprice to always assure there will be disabilities,” says Laurie Zoloth, director of the Center for Bioethics, Science and Society at Northwestern University. “But could there be fewer? When people worry about curing too many things, I’m always glad that bioethics wasn’t around when people were thinking about infectious diseases or polio or yellow fever.”
