About the Authors
  • The emergence of new empirical evidence and ethical debate about families created by assisted reproduction has called into question the current regulatory frameworks that govern reproductive donation in many countries. In this multidisciplinary book, social scientists, ethicists and lawyers offer fresh perspectives on the current challenges facing the regulation of reproductive donation and suggest possible ways forward. They address questions such as: what might people want to know about the circumstances of their conception? Should we limit the number of children donors can produce? Is it wrong to pay donors or to reward them with cut-price fertility treatments? Is overseas surrogacy exploitative of women from poor communities? Combining the latest empirical research with analysis of ethics, policy and legislation, the book focuses on the regulation of gamete and embryo donation and surrogacy at a time when more people are considering assisted reproduction and when new techniques and policies are underway.

    • Focuses on key issues relating to the regulation of assisted reproduction, such as the number of offspring that should be created from each sperm donor, and whether it is important, or even possible, to regulate across borders
    • Presents cutting-edge research on the latest social, policy and technological developments in assisted reproduction
    • Includes high quality contributions from an international team of academics, researchers and practitioners, including leading authors in the field

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This excellent interdisciplinary volume clearly combines the empirical research and the theoretical debates, creating ethical discussions that for once are applicable to actual family situations.' Fiona MacCallum, University of Warwick

    'Regulating Reproductive Donation is an incredibly interesting read from start to finish. This book would be a suitable addition to an academic legal collection, but also a worthwhile read for legal counsel working in this area to better understand the nuances and intricacies of reproductive donation.' Jennifer Walker, Canadian Law Library Review
