My Egg, My Husband, Her Womb, Whose Child?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Science can fulfill the dream of becoming parents even for those for whom it would have been a biological impossibility a generation ago. Let us explore how Jewish law deals with the categorization of paternity (even posthumously) and maternity (is the mother the egg donor or gestational carrier?). Are there any religious limitations on these new scientific technologies? For example, is it permissible to choose fertilized eggs based on sex of the child?
