Description

The issue of posthumous reproduction, the retrieval and use of the gametes of a deceased person, is fraught with ethical, legal, and religious debate. Should gametes be considered property or organs? Is it ethical to make someone a parent without their consent or would denying them this opportunity be considered harm? Who should have the right to access a deceased person’s gametes?
