When a couple is considering a difficult choice such as IVF treatment or third party assisted conception, they may look to their religious faith for moral and ethical guidance. "Faith and Fertility" is a comprehensive collection of essays by academics and faith leaders from around the world. The reader is introduced to the cultural and religious understanding of fertility as it is practised among diverse international faith traditions. Each Chapter is written in an accessible and clear style, outlining each faith's history and its core beliefs and values, showing the influence these have on its moral and ethical perspective on the issues surrounding fertility law and policy globally. This book will be a welcome resource for anyone seeking to acquaint themselves with the plethora of attitudes towards fertility that are at work in today's global and multi-cultural world.
