Über diesen Titel


Is there a such thing as a universal right to have children? Should medical assistance to have children be available to everyone? Are all methods of assisted reproduction legitimate?

The development of new reproductive technologies has spawned heated debate and deep controversy about how fertility treatments should be used clinically and by whom they should be controlled.

Many individuals and groups claim access to assisted reproduction as an essential right--not only clinically infertile heterosexual couples, but also single women, gay couples, post-menopausal women, and career-oriented couples who wish to delay having children. Others argue that the simple desire to have children cannot be the sole criteria to determine whether assisted reproduction should be a human right. Furthermore, some object to providing fertility treatment on the basis of age, sexual orientation, or other lifestyle features.

Mary Warnock steers a clear path through the web of complex issues underlying these divergent views. She analyzes what it means to claim something as a "right," examines the ethical problems faced by particular types of assisted reproduction, including artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization, and surrogacy, and argues that in the future human cloning may well become a viable and acceptable form of treatment for some types of infertility.

About the Author:

Mary Warnock's work in academic philosophy includes the books Imagination, Memory, and Existentialism. Much of her career was spent at Oxford University, and she was later Mistress of Girton College Cambridge. She was made a life peer in 1985, and chaired the Committee of Enquiry into Human Fertilization and Embryology, whose report formed the basis of legislation in the United Kingdom. Her most recent book is her autobiography, Mary Warnock: A Memoir.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
