Engineering Human Reproduction: A Challenge to Public Policy
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1985 Aug; 10(3): 267-274.
New reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer, are creating ethical and public policy dilemmas that involve deep-rooted feelings about reproductive autonomy and the moral status of embryos. The author regrets that American efforts to clarify policy on these matters, as through the Ethics Advisory Board of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, have been ignored by the executive branch of the federal government. He urges Congress to establish an independent advisory body to provide the sort of careful and comprehensive review of reproductive issues that was presented to the British Parliament by the Warnock Committee.
