The Risk of a Lifetime

How, When, and Why Procreation May Be Permissible

Rivka Weinberg

  • This book includes a new, comprehensive, systematic, and original theory of procreative ethics
  • It also presents a controversial view regarding what makes someone parentally responsible to a child, which has controversial implications for the ethics of gamete donation and sale
  • And it provides a three-pronged attack on the famous non-identity problem, hopefully defanging that long misunderstood "problem" for good
