In order to make the guidelines as inclusive as possible and therefore as useful as possible as tools of deliberation and the creation of public policy, very few if any metaphysical commitments will be used to motivate the claims outlined herein. This should then create a set of fundamental guidelines that can be used to determine the moral acceptability of various forms of genetic interventions. It will allow for discussion and deliberation about the acceptability of any genetic intervention amongst the widest possible section of the community while putting in place constraints to protect society both now and in future generations. The hope is that by not directly tying the guidelines to a particular metaphysical viewpoint about ethics and the nature of the world that they will be able to be more easily discussed. People holding various metaphysical positions should be able to look at the guidelines and at the very least are able to engage with them and comment on them without simply falling back to their metaphysical position in order to justify their criticisms.
