Inhalt Human Reproduction is a field which has undergone fundamental changes in the last decades due to both technological developments in the field of medically assisted reproduction (MAR) and to socio-cultural changes and beliefs of what makes a family. MAR still undergoes constant changes, with new developments and technological advances frequently arising. These generate both great opportunities (e.g. In-Vitro-Fertilization has permitted many infertile parents to have children), but also ethical dilemmas connected to them. The latter are particularly vast, stretching from questions surrounding abortion and the moral status of a fetus, the availability of surrogate parenthood and social egg freezing, to parental rights and responsibilities when it comes to the child(ren) in question. To explore these ethical dilemmas and how they might be answered to, we will hear from some of the leading experts in the field. We will learn how reproduction has come to be such a technologically developed field, what moral doubts these have created, and what impacts these have both in Switzerland and abroad.

The “Contemporary Debates in Bioethics” is a lecture series, which is offered once every semester. Each semester, the installment of the lecture focuses on another aspect of current debates and potential ethical concerns and conflicts. During the fall semester of 2024, the focus of the lecture will be on reproduction. If you should have any questions concerning the format, the learning objectives and/or your participation, please do not hesitate to contact Nathalie Neeser (nathalie.neeser@unibas.ch).
Lernziele The goal of the lecture is for students to learn about, understand and to reflect on several of the contemporary ethical and practical issues related to human reproduction and its (technological) evolution, both in Switzerland and globally.
