For the Love of Children: Genetic Technology & the Future of the Family

Westminster John Knox Press / 1996 / Paperback

In Stock
CBD Stock No: WW4254683


Product Description

Choices in reproductive technology have multiplied at a staggering rate. Is our society prepared to decided on issues about procreation such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, or genetic engineering such as "designer children," or selective abortion? How can we protect children - both born and unborn - who are conceived in these ways from being regarded as merchandise in the expanding marketplace of genetic services? Ted Peters sets out the challenges of these new technologies with clarity and precision. He looks anew at Christian theology and proposes an ethic "for the love of children." Peters contends that only by affirming all children and their claims upon parents will society deal constructively and ethically with the many reproductive choices available now and in the future.
