Islam and Assisted Reproductive Technologies : Sunni and Shia Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Marcia C. Inhorn, Soraya Tremayne
Part of the Fertility, Reproduction & Sexuality series
How and to what extent have Islamic legal scholars and Middle Eastern lawmakers, as well as Middle Eastern Muslim physicians and patients, grappled with the complex bioethical, legal and social issues that are raised in the process of attempting to conceive life in the face of infertility?
This path-breaking volume explores the influence of Islamic attitudes on assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) and reveals the variations in both the Islamic jurisprudence and the cultural responses to ARTs.
