Inconceivable technology? The future of reproduction

Reproductive technologies have made a huge difference to both the opportunities and the rights to reproduce. In the future we may have the power to choose between existing traits and between a whole menu of improvements to the health and welfare, powers and capacities. Prof John Harris will address the question accessing these possibilities.


Reproductive technologies have made a huge difference to both the opportunities and the rights to reproduce. In the future these opportunities will increase exponentially with enhanced powers to choose between existing traits and between a whole menu of improvements to the health and welfare, powers and capacities of future people. The question as to the legitimacy and permissibility of accessing these possibilities as they come on stream will be one of the most significant issues for technologically advanced societies. It is these questions that John Harris will address.
