REGISTER NOW! Harvard Medical School 2017 Bioethics Conference: The Ethics of "Making Babies"
The use of assisted reproductive technologies raises far-reaching ethical and legal implications, yet there is little regulatory oversight of these medical procedures in the United States. In a field marked by rapid technological innovation, policy makers, physician-scientists, and those seeking infertility treatment must navigate questions related to conception in a landscape of shifting cultural norms and ideological divisions.
The Harvard Medical School Center for Bioethics’ Annual Bioethics Conference convenes experts from education, medicine, law, and other key stakeholders to frame and discuss the ethical implications of both current and developing reproductive technologies.
