Religion and reproductive science

Guest editor Myrna Perez Sheldon writes in her introduction, “This forum examines the lives that are made possible and impossible by reproductive science.” She continues:

“This forum invites scholars to question narratives of progress, perfection, and triumphant secularism that are threaded through contemporary discussion of modern reproductive practices. Together the contributors ask: What notions of freedom do reproductive technologies assume? What new moral dilemmas have been opened up by these techniques? In what way has reproductive science transformed already existing questions about what is livable and what is grievable in the creation and care of new life?”
