In this lecture we will look to current stem-cell, genetic, and reproductive research to ask how what is happening in laboratories today might offer solutions for reproducing in ways that both men, and women, have never before been able to, for example in preserving or creating eggs and sperm beyond the limits of our biological clocks. We will explore the ethics and consider the benefits, and drawbacks of advancing technology in reproduction.
