Reproducing the 21st Century

Making Babies in a Brave New World
In this course we will examine the fundamentals of human reproduction and its modern reproductive intervention strategies. As rapid discoveries in medical technologies have allowed us to push the limits of the human body, questions remain as to whether we should pursue, permit, or regulate such advances. We will explore scientific, societal, legal, ethical, and individual issues surrounding the control of fertility and infertility, fetal life, birth, and the neonatal period. Through critical review of the literature, class discussion, and writing assignments, students will acquire an understanding of key topics in reproductive medicine.
