In this topical and scholarly book, Elizabeth Ettorre focuses on prenatal screening to explore how the key concepts of gender and the body are intertwined with the whole process of building genetic knowledge, including specific techniques and procedures. She shows how at the interface between genetics and the space defined as 'prenatal' the modernist tradition of scientific disinterestedness is being replaced by a new ethic: the making of moral judgements by scientists.
