Gene doping in athletes hasn’t been embraced legally. Philosopically, however, it’s another story.
In a new paper entitled “Enhancing Evolution: The Transhuman Case for Gene Doping,” British bioethicist Andy Miah refutes the World Anti-Doping Agency’s argument that genetic enhancement ruins the spirit of the sport.
In fact, he argues, a pro-doping system would actually encourage “excellence in performance,” because it would help athletes reach levels never before seen in competition. He also argues that gene doping would actually make elite-level sports safer, since so many players injure themselves through incident or over-training.
