Product Overview

The legal and moral claims of some biological parents and other "childmakers", including users of the new reproductive technologies, have been considered to excuse conduct that is harmful or potentially harmful for children. It makes our lives, as adults, far simpler if we do not have to take into account the needs and interests of children as we strive for recognition of our own issues and concerns, but there are occasions in which we might find ourselves at risk for solving our own problems on the backs of our children. In this exceptionally well-argued book, M. A. E. Roberts analyzes a variety of specific situations in which such claims might be made. She concludes that there are no excuses for ignoring the needs and interests of our children when we formulate solutions that will affect them. This book is certain to be of interest to anyone concerned about family law, medical ethics, and social justice.
