Regulating Reproduction examines the social context and current state of the art of reproductive mediating technologies such as artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, surrogate motherhood, sex preselection, DNA probes, prenatal diagnosis, and sterilization. Robert H. Blank explores the impact of the technological revolution on our perceptions of children, parenthood, and the family. He discusses the impact of trends toward the commercialization of reproductive services as well as the inclusion of third parties into what until now has been a private matter between two persons.
