Reproductive Ethics

Reproductive Ethics (PDF ebook – 442nd edition)

Edited by Healey, Justin

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is a group of procedures used to assist people in achieving a pregnancy. Recent advancements in the use and availability of ART treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), gamete donation and surro...gacy have raised numerous ethical considerations. This book explores reproductive concerns and opposing opinions on a range of issues including: the ethics of IVF treatment for older women; success rate claims of commercial clinics; access by IVF offspring to the identities of their donor parents; the fate of excess frozen embryos; public funding of IVF; payment for egg and sperm donation; 'social egg freezing' by younger women delaying motherhood; the dilemmas of preimplantation genetic screening; the sex selection debate; collection of gametes and embryos from dying and deceased loved ones; and commercial surrogacy arrangements.
