Technology and the Reproductive System: Part 2

People who seek assisted births however believe that it is their right to pursue such practices. They are comfortable in knowing that they have chosen the appropriate egg for the right mother, and that cost is not a factor when pursuing such practices. Currently, assisted reproduction is not covered under most insurance plans. Therefore, the general tax-paying public usually will soak up the cost, thus creating fear and resentment for such practices. The general public fears that the types of reproductive technology will soon consume a vast majority of births, and that babies who are conceived naturally will be somehow inferior to those who have had technological births.

My opinion on the issue is simple; it is not natural. I believe that by producing techno-babies will create an inferiority complex for those who have conceived naturally. The facts given in the video and other studies show that one-third of all reproductive pregnancies are compromised. Various procedures now make it possible to intervene not only in order to assist, but also to dominate the processes of procreation. These techniques can enable man and woman to “take in hand his own destiny”, but they also expose him to the temptation to go beyond the limits of nature. I sympathize with those who can not reproduce on their own; however adoption would be the most sensible and logical way to raise a life this great Earth. When technology has created the perfect baby, the essence of natural birth will soon become extinct.
