A Child at All Costs: Posthumous Reproduction and the Meaning of Parenthood
Human Reproduction. 1994 Nov; 9(11): 2182-2185.
The creation of babies by assisted and collaborative techniques of reproduction, such as in-vitro fertilization or cryopreservation of gametes and embryos, stimulates strong emotions and fantasies about life, death, sexuality and immortality. Particularly, the cryopreservation of spermatozoa for post-mortem reproduction forces us to come to terms with the meaning of human reproduction, and the extent of individual rights to procreate using artificial means.
