"Ethics: Our Choices" is a series which introduces specific subjects of concern and controversy within Christian ethics to a wide variety of readers. Each subject is approached at a serious level, but technical language is avoided. The books should be useful in introductory seminary programmes, in programmes for congregational development, and also to individuals seeking information and guidance within their Christian life. On 25th July 1978, Louise Brown, the first "test-tube" baby was born. This event captured the public imagination and made the ethical issues surrounding artificial fertilization and embryology impossible to ignore. In this text, Tony Dyson examines the religious and moral implications for the individual and for society of this and other reproductive technologies.
