The Upside of Baby Markets
Few think there is an upside to baby markets. This chapter challenges conventional wisdom by suggesting that marketizing parenthood through the sale of gametes and other reproductive technologies facilitates family formation by single and gay people. After briefly reviewing literature, it defends commercialization of human eggs and sperm and applies those defenses to embryo markets.
