Legal Issues in Biotechnology and Human Reproduction: Artificial Conception and Modern Genetics

Synopsis

Freedman provides a comprehensive examination of the legal, ethical, and moral dilemmas posed by recent advances in biological engineering and human reproduction. His wide-ranging analysis includes discussion of the rights of fetuses, donors, and adoptive parents; the liability of physicians; patentable organisms and other new developments in research; and a review of existing statutes, policies, and contracts that attempt to deal with these issues both here and abroad. In addition the author explores possible legal and policy remedies that may help to establish the rights and responsibilities of individuals, families, and the greater society in the face of these new developments.
