9780674728967: The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction

Within twenty, maybe forty, years most people in developed countries will stop having sex for the purpose of reproduction. Instead, prospective parents will be told as much as they wish to know about the genetic makeup of dozens of embryos, and they will pick one or two for implantation, gestation, and birth. And it will be safe, lawful, and free. In this work of prophetic scholarship, Henry T. Greely explains the revolutionary biological technologies that make this future a seeming inevitability and sets out the deep ethical and legal challenges humanity faces as a result.

Developments in genetics and stem cell research are giving rise to new techniques that will vastly improve preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), making sexless reproduction not just possible but cheap and easy―what Greely coins “easy PGD.” The first child born using PGD is now 25 years old, and thousands more are born each year. Advanced by economic, social, legal, and political forces, the emerging science has made the concerns that were once the stuff of science fiction into real problems that our children and grandchildren will face routinely.

Deeply informed by Greely’s command of both science and law, The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction is a book for parents, citizens, and all those, born and unborn, who will face the consequences of a new era of human reproduction.

About the Author:

Henry T. Greely is Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law and Professor, by courtesy, of Genetics at Stanford University.

Review:

[Greely] employs lucid prose to explain the science behind reproduction, genetics, and stem cells, and explores the scientific, legal, and political pathway toward easy [preimplantation genetic diagnosis]. (Tanya Lewis The Scientist 2016-05-13)

Will the future confront us with human GMOs? Greely provocatively declares yes, and, while clearly explaining the science, spells out the ethical, political, and practical ramifications. (Paul Berg, Nobel Laureate and recipient of the National Medal of Science)

This book could not be more timely. Greely imagines the future of human reproduction with the insight, wit, and panache readers of his work have come to expect. (Glenn Cohen, Harvard Law School, author of Patients with Passports)

Greely has written an exceptional book. Anyone interested in the technology of human reproduction and what it holds for humanity’s future will thoroughly enjoy the read. (Judith Daar, Whittier Law School)

We owe it to ourselves, to the society we live in, to our children and our children’s children to think long and hard about the arguments Greely presents before we make choices about the future of human reproduction. One of the most exciting and thought-provoking books I have read in a long time. (Jennifer Merchant, Université de Paris II)

[Greely] provides an extraordinarily sophisticated analysis of the practical, political, legal, and ethical implications of the new world of human reproduction. His book is a model of highly informed, rigorous, thought-provoking speculation about an immensely important topic. (Glenn C. Altschuler Psychology Today 2016-06-07)

The End of Sex is eye-opening about the prospects created by biomedical technology...Greely’s book offers a balanced, informed and calm analysis of the legal, ethical and social frameworks within which we must resolve these dilemmas [of sex-free conception]. (Philip Ball New Statesman 2016-05-15)

Greely’s background in law and bioethics [brings] a fresh perspective. The book is a timely assessment of the way things are, and the direction they are heading: it is also a rallying call for debate about regulation, and about the sort of society we want to live in. (Linda Geddes New Scientist 2016-06-18)

Readers looking for a more in-depth analysis of human genome modifications and reproductive technologies and their legal and ethical implications should strongly consider picking up Greely’s The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction...Greely’s breezy first-person narrative belies the extraordinary depth and impressive quality of information provided, both scientific and legal...[It has] the potential to empower readers to make informed decisions about the implementation of advancements in genetics technologies. (Dov Greenbaum Science 2016-06-24)
