Question

Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) can help infertile couples, homosexual

couples, single men and women, and post-menopausal women to name a few. However, when donor eggs/sperm or a surrogate are used, the question of bonding can affect all parties involved. Bonds can develop between child and genetic parent(s), between surrogate mother and child, and between the genetic parents. The risk that inappropriate bonds will be created through the reproductive process is very real and can cause many problems. On many occasions, surrogate mothers have sued the genetic parents for custody after the baby was born or for the right to abort a malformed fetus even though the genetic parents wanted the child to live. What is your take on it, what kind of moral and/or ethical issues can emerge?
