Basic Questions on Sexuality and Reproductive Technology: When is it Right to Intervene?

Overview

Questions surrounding the issues of sexuality, reproduction, and infertility are some of the most personal and emotionally difficult questions that couples face. A bewildering array of modern technologies, however, challenges our most deeply held traditions concerning childbearing and parenting. Some of the questions answered in this work include:

  • Is it okay for me to use a donor's egg or sperm?
  • What about surrogate motherhood?
  • What are the legal issues with reproductive technology?
  • Is it okay to use any form of birth control?
  • What about human cloning?
