dc.description.abstractAs global markets generate new genetic services that threaten traditional conceptions of the human person, theologians and religious ethicists are tasked to address what has been called “consumer eugenics,” a value-shaping, entrepreneurial phenomenon with eugenic qualities. One scholar who dealt with similar challenges during the period of the “old eugenics” a century ago was Monsignor John A. Ryan, who defended traditional views of the person against the encroachments of science and the power of markets to break down moral barriers. Ryan’s willingness to confront early eugenicists both as an academic economist and a proponent of Catholic social teaching offers a model for Christian engagement today.|Keywords: John A.
