Editor's Introduction on Reproductive Technologies and Gene Therapy
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1985 Aug; 10(3): 209-212.
An introduction is provided for a journal issue devoted to philosophical questions surrounding new modes of human reproduction, the early stages of human development, and the genetic alteration of human beings. The introduction includes a chart of 16 alternative methods of artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization, showing for each method the source of gametes, site of fertilization, and site of pregnancy. A two-by-two matrix is used to classify the major types of gene therapy, depending on whether it applies to somatic or germline cells and to cell repair or enhancement. (KIE abstract)
