Advances in reproductive technology have allowed women otherwise unable to have children to conceive and bring children to term. These advances have also allowed scientists to clone a sheep and other large mammals. The technology is moving so quickly that many wonder if "designer babies" are far behind. With that question come ethical and legal issues that are open for debate. Among those explored by author Jon Sterngass in REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES are: who should regulate the new technologies, and how; what are the rights and obligations both of sperm and egg donors, and the children born from those donations?
