New reproductive and genetic technologies are providing people with the opportunity almost allover the world to have children. Variations in legislation across countries, however, are giving place to the phenomenon of cross-border reproductive care, where people cross international borders to access a variety of reproductive services fertility treatment, egg procurement, and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. This raises a host of ethical concerns about whether women’s rights and needs are appropriately respected.
