- I endorse Mark Walker’s thesis that there is no moral difference between genetic interventions to make it more likely that children will develop moral virtues, such as truthfulness, caring, and justice — however, exactly, these are understood — and environmental interventions aimed at the same outcome. In this response, I offer some further considerations that tend to support the thesis in the face of "loss of freedom" or "loss of autonomy" arguments.
