"Scholars already saturated with moral commentary on new reproductive arrangements are in for a stimulating surprise. For, this volume breaks new ground, scrutinizing their impact at a more penetrating level and challenging the terms of the dominant debate.... It should set a standard for further work and receive the attention of mainstream thinkers and policy makers that it so richly deserves." -- Human Studies

"... a valuable contribution to the literature in an important and rapidly evolving area of law and applied ethics." -- Ethics

"... virtually every essay is thought-provoking and well-informed, and together they address just the topics you'd want to see covered -- as well as a few you might not have thought of." -- Medical Humanities Review

"... extremely interesting reading for all those who are involved in, or wish to know more about, the moral, social and policy consequences of new reproductive technologies." -- Biosocial Science

"This thought-provoking collection of essays addresses moral and legal questions revolving around modern human reproduction.... an invaluable resource for any family law practitioner." -- The Women's Advocate

"Editor Callahan presents a fascinating look at the facts, facets, and legal effects of modern technology on reproduction.... A work that provides insight on all issues concerning reproduction." -- Choice

"[The book] is a valuable contribution to the literature in an important evolving area of law and applied ethics." -- Ethics

"... displays the richness of feminist scholarship. It points the way for a fuller appreciation of the varied voices of feminist analyses in many other areas." -- Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law

"... a comprehensive, compelling and carefully researched volume. This is applied feminist ethics at its very impressive best." -- Journal of Medical Ethics

Essays address moral and legal quandaries related to human reproduction, adding to the feminist dimension of the public discussion of these issues, including: new complexities in contraception and abortion technologies; frozen embryos, unwed fathers, and the legal definition of parenthood; and the use of fetal tissue.
