Legal and Ethical Issues in Human Reproduction Hardback

Edited by Bonnie Steinbock

Part of the The International Library of Medicine, Ethics and Law series


Whilst advances in reproductive medicine have enabled thousands of couples worldwide to have children, they also raise a plethora of ethical, philosophical and legal questions. This collection of essays by leading international scholars in bioethics, law, philosophy and public health, addresses many of the most difficult and intriguing issues. These include: the nature and scope of the right to reproduce, the meaning of parenthood and family, the significance of genetic connection to parenting, non-traditional families, sperm and egg donation, commercial surrogacy, prenatal genetic testing, reproductive cloning, obligations to children of reproductive technology and post mortem insemination. Legal and Ethical Issues in Human Reproduction is an important contribution to the growing literature on reproductive technology and one that will be of value to scholars, practitioners and students alike.
