Forensic uses and misuses of DNA: a case report from Norway
New technology generates fantastic possibilities which challenge traditional distinctions between good and bad. Genetic analysis of DNA for forensic purposes is but one example of this. Here society's need for convicting criminals can conflict with the same society's need to assure the confidentiality of information about its members and their trust in its institutions. In order to illustrate the complexity of such challenges , a case report from Norway is presented. The point is to reflect on the way we handle trailblazing health technologies in general and on cases where law and order is gained by means that can be conceived of as immoral in particular. The case calls for careful ethical reflection.
