New Reproductive Technologies Raise ‘Serious Theological, Ethical, And Legal Concerns’

Inter Press Service: On Reproductive Rights, Progress with Concerns
Joseph Chamie, former director of the United Nations Population Division

“…During the past half-century remarkable technological progress has been made in human reproduction. As a result of this medical progress, women and men have acquired wide-ranging reproductive rights and technologies to determine the number, timing, and spacing of their children and to overcome childlessness with biological offspring. The new reproductive technologies, however, have also given rise to serious theological, ethical, and legal concerns that have not been satisfactorily addressed. Anticipated future medical breakthroughs in human reproduction make it even more imperative for the international community of nations to address the growing challenges and concerns regarding reproductive technologies and rights” (10/1).
