The current debate over reproductive rights centers primarily on advancements in reproductive technology. This term is used in reference to both current and projected uses of technology in human and animal reproduction. Examples of controversial reproductive technologies are cloning, contraception, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, embryo testing, and hormone treatment to increase fertility, to name just a few. The paper looks at the history of reproductive rights, the advancements in the area thus far, and the current recommendations or debates on the subject. The paper looks at the points of view of both the liberal and conservative sides on the issue.

From the Paper:

"Furthermore, liberals would say that marriage between a man and a woman is not the only place that a child can be raised properly, or the only place where technology can/should be allowed. Liberals would criticize the close-mindedness of the conservative stance and say that reproductive technology is free and open for anyone to choose. Liberals would also criticize the conservative view of contraception and say that monogamy as an institution is against the sexual freedom that people are entitled to. Teaching only abstinence is not viewed as realistic from a liberal standpoint, nor is it viewed as necessary. Liberals view conservatives as making sex into a dirty "thing" when not done within a heterosexual marriage."
