Summary
This volume explores the issues surrounding reproductive technology, weaving together the personal stories of the people affected by these issues and the knowledge of the professionals who have studied the consequences. Through dozens of real life stories, the author explores such issues as -- genetic testing and engineering, surrogacy, fertility drugs and treatments, criminal prosecution for a mother's prenatal substance abuse, Menopausal motherhood, fetal tissue transplants and more. This work also examines the issues of privacy, the rights of mothers, fathers, and babies, and what to do with the technology that has changed the way we look at reproduction
