Example text

The new reproductive technologies often involve a dehumanization of the reproductive process and are therefore morally illicit. 6. 13 As we show below, questions about ARTs and nature closely parallel these concerns. ” However, particular religious cultures often choose to question the “naturalness” of very different reproductive techniques and processes or have very different reasons for finding the same procedures problematic. 1 The Natural Family A significant proportion of the questions that ARTs raise has to do with the shape of the “natural family”: What are its limits?

3. The new reproductive techniques often result in a morally illicit confusion of lineage, since children are often unaware of their biological parents. 4. Some new reproductive techniques (IVF) often involve a failure to implant fertilized eggs. This is a form of early abortion and is therefore morally illicit. 12 According to Charis Thompson this procedure was forbidden in the United States in 2001 but nevertheless has “wide clinical application” here (Thompson, 2005, 272–273). 28 C. Traina et al.

It is God’s word, not nature, that establishes the boundaries for the exercise of human freedom. Thus, the moral task is to discern what is fitting with respect to God’s intentions for procreation as known through Scripture. 27 In the hands of more liberal interpreters, the rationales for biblical models of family life understood within their historical and cultural contexts carry more weight than the models themselves. So, for instance, a fertile heterosexual marriage might be seen as “naturally ideal” not in itself but because it combines factors ideal for a non-instrumental view of children and for children’s flourishing: loving sexual reproduction, the emotional and financial security of a two-adult household, the intimate presence of both male and female adults, the long-term commitment of marriage, and religious, social, and political approbation (Waters, 2001).
