Fertility & Gender: Issues in Reproductive and Sexual Ethics, edited by Helen Watt

What is sex and why is it important? Does marriage have a basic rationale? How should couples manage their fertility, and when and how should pregnancy be achieved? How should we respond to 'embryo adoption', teenage pregnancy, population growth, HIV/AIDS and other STIs, same-sex attraction?

This collection of original essays looks at these and other pivotal issues in reproductive and sexual ethics, from the perspectives of philosophy, theology, psychology and economic science. Contributors include Bishop Anthony Fisher, John Berry, Kevin Flannery, Mary Geach, Luke Gormally, Dermot Grenham, Paul Mankowski, Anthony McCarthy, Kevin O'Reilly, David Paton, Alexander Pruss, Philip Sutton and Helen Watt.
