'...the book provides a clear argument in defense of the Genetic Supermarket and the reproductive liberty of its customers. It is an informative and thoughtful approach to the question of legislation surrounding reproductive choices.' - Rachael Dobson,, July 2008

'The wide range of issues and arguments considered, clarity of discussion, and sharp analysis makes Defending the Genetic Supermarket an excellent introduction to the issues, with plenty of references for further reading. It is a brilliant contribution to the debates about ethical and policy issues in PGD, tissue typing and embryo selection. It should be required reading for anyone concerned with ethical and policy issues in PGD.' - Gardar Arnason, Medical Law Review, vol. 16 no. 1 (Spring 2008)

'... a compelling case for a choice approach towards PGD as a justifiable regulatory framework from the perspective of human rights... [a] valuable addition to the current literature' - Eva Asscher, SCRIPTed, vol. 5 no. 2 (Spring 2008)
