The theme of this short book is the right to procreate in the Israeli context. My discussion of this right includes the implementation of the right to procreate, restrictions on the right (due to societal, legal, or religious concerns), and the effect of the changing conception of the right to procreate (both substantively and in practice) on core family concepts, such as parents, father, and mother.
In the current Israeli legal and cultural sphere, two issues are at the forefront of the discussion over the right to procreate: first, the regulations governing and the conflicts surrounding surrogacy and egg donation, and second, the debate over posthumous fertilization. These issues are the focus of Assisted Reproduction in Israel.
The enclosed file is more than a classic introduction: it includes methodological clarifications and a hermeneutical discussion on the influence of the author's own viewpoint on the research.
