Relatedness in assisted reproduction : Families, origins and identities

Freeman, Tabitha 1971, Editor.

Cambridge, UK : Cambridge University Press, 2016, c2014.

xi, 319 pages.

Assisted reproduction challenges and reinforces traditional understandings of family and kinship. Sperm, egg and embryo donation and surrogacy raise questions about relatedness for parents, children and other people who may be involved in the conception, gestation and care of a child. How socially, morally or psychologically significant is a genetic link between a donor-conceived child and their donor? What difference does it make if this link is with an egg donor or a sperm donor? What does it mean for a parent to be genetically unrelated to their child? What should offspring born through assisted reproduction be told about their origins and is such information important for their identity? How is kinship experienced by men and women using collaborative reproduction in heterosexual couples, same-sex couples or single-parent families? How does the wider cultural, socio-legal and regulatory context impact on these experiences? This multidisciplinary book presents fresh insights into the key issue of relatedness in assisted reproduction. An international team of academics and clinicians brings together new empirical research and a range of social science, legal and bioethical perspectives to explore the complex meanings of origins, identities and kin connections in assisted reproduction families. Taken from back cover.
