Outside the Womb: Moral Guidance for Assisted Reproduction

Outside the Womb: Moral Guidance for Assisted Reproduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) is on the rise in our culture as an alternative for couples facing infertility issues and single women desiring to have children. Is it right - morally, ethically, biblically - to engage this new technology? Are there some aspects of ART that are more acceptable than others?  Outside the Womb: The Ethics of Reproductive Technologies addresses the whole issue of "making life", providing valuable information, both theologically and scientifically, for Christian couples to reflect upon as they consider the various fertility treatments.

Synopsis:

The use of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) is rising. Media accounts of unnatural multiplies and aging celebrities having children represent the exceptions, not the norm. The most common user of reproductive technologies today may be an average American couple or single woman unable to have children naturally.

As Americans continue to delay child-bearing, and as availability of fertility treatments rises, we can expect more and more Christian couples to make use of reproductive technologies. But how ethical are such treatments? What key issues should couples wrestle with before using any type of assisted procreation? These are the kinds of questions medical ethicist Scott Rae and Dr. Joy Riley seek to answer in Outside the Womb.

The authors don't condemn ART, but they do call Christians to give careful thought to what God intended for the family and to the ethical issues involved in various fertility treatments.
