In continuation of 2007-2008 , Adrienne Asch, the director of the Center for Ethics at Yeshiva University and the Edward and Robin Milstein Professor of Bioethics at Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler School of Social Work, will give a lecture "Why Reproductive Choice Does Not Mean Reproductive Selection” on October 29, 2007.
New and not-so-new reproductive technologies permit prospective parents to select for or against certain characteristics in their future children, and advocates of such selection celebrate these technologies as extensions of women's reproductive "choice," this talk will argue that the interest in selecting children's characteristics is troubling even for those committed to a pro-choice position on reproductive freedom.
In conjuction with this lecture, we have compiled a bibliography featuring books, journal articles, book reviews and websites by and about the speaker.
