Artificial Human Insemination: Report of a Conference held under the Auspices of the Public Morality Council reviews the medical, sociological, psychological, and theological aspects of artificial insemination. This book is divided into 11 chapters that discuss various statements made by some representative of certain sector of the society. It addresses legal issues of using artificial insemination in humans and demonstrates the mode that was taken to clarify these issues.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the procedure and policy in relation to human artificial insemination; definition of human artificial insemination; analysis of the procedure of using the method; progress in the development of a fetus; analysis of the effectiveness of the method; and possible insemination of a sperm from a third party. Other chapters describe the situations wherein the method of human artificial insemination is used. The discussion then shifts to the history and developments in applying the method, as well as an analysis of a doctor’s opinion on the result of using the method for impotent husband. The remaining chapters deal with the advantages and disadvantages of using the method.
The book can provide useful information to the doctors, theologians, sociologists, students, and researchers.
