Re: Interview with the Bioethicist

I might recommend that you give examples of hypothetical medical vinettes for the bioethicist to comment on, and give these a transhumanist twist. For example, give some example of benefit-risk analysis for plastic surgery, then follow up with a nearly identical scenario but using genetic engineering to accomplish the task. Another example might involve comparing cloning for reproduction to IVF. You also might want to get a comment on bioethics in medical research, and of using unproven treatments in the desparately ill. Also a good general topic is how to differentiate (if possible<g>) between treating disease and enhancement. Just some ideas.
