1 Bioethics case study paternity test on Mon Feb 08, 2016 10:48 pm


Arresto Menor
In 2009 a private company in the UK started marketing an "over the counter" paternity testing kit. Clients send samples of their own DNA and that of the child whose paternity is in doubt and for a fee, get results within 5 days (or 24 hours for double fee).

Two adults must consent to the procedure: the putative father and the mother of the child. Proof of identity is required and one adult will be telephoned to check that the consequences of possible test results have been considered.

1. Identify the bioethics issue arising form this case.
2. How will you address the issue?

Reclusion Perpetua
Unfortunately, the academic subjects that law students take do not usually have any bioethics involved, so we are not qualified to answer this question as sufficiently as we could.

Apologies. Maybe you could redirect the questions in a more legal manner that we could somehow assist you with?
