Overview

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, nontraditional 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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fourteen chapters, selected primarily from previous appearances in law journals between 1986 and 1999 by Steinbock (State University of New York at Albany), explore a range of legal and ethical issues related to reproductive rights and technologies. Among the topics are the philosophical basis for a right to reproduce, biology as the basis for parental rights, human egg donation and gestational surrogacy issues, markets in women's reproductive labor, the inequality reinforcing aspects of prenatal genetic testing and screening, and the sterilization of mentally retarded persons.
