About this item

This book examines the ethical problems with using donated ******, eggs and embryos, known collectively as donor conception". In addition to delineating the existing arguments, it introduces new thinking and clear analysis into a debate which has hitherto been the preserve of professional groups with their own cultures and perspectives. It covers: * Details of the history and practice of donor conception in the UK and overseas. * The argument that donor conception is a social experiment whose secrecy makes its results impossible to determine. * The evidence from adoption that genetic relationships are of fundamental importance to human beings, and the resulting likelihood that donor-conceived people are being significantly damaged. * The philosophical arguments that are used to justify donor conception even if damage is being caused. These arguments are examined in detail and found to be unconvincing. * The ideologies in society that make the medium-term continuation of donor conception inevitable. *
