Abstract

There is a growing body of literature exploring whether uterus transplantation and emerging ectogestation technologies provide desirable alternatives for persons who cannot achieve genetic parenthood without access to gestational surrogacy. This chapter considers the practical and ethical dimensions of these alternative routes to parenthood, in addition to salient differences that might account for individual preferences regarding assisted gestative technologies. The central concern of promoting equitable access to emerging reproductive biotechnologies is approached from a justice perspective, paying particular attention to the needs of marginalised communities.
