"Given the range and complexity of issues on which the Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies was asked to make recommendations, it was vital that it find a common way for Commissioners with varying backgrounds and life experiences to approach the technologies -- an ethical framework for decision making was needed. The first paper in this volume of studies presents the ethical framework the Commission adopted: a modified ethic of care and a set of guiding principles that were used as a prism through which to view the technologies. The volume then goes on to explore some of the ethical issues raised by the development and use of new reproductive technologies". -- Intro.
