Reproductive technology is a term that encompasses a variety of modern fertility-related techniques, many of which raise questions regarding their acceptability according to the Jewish religion. The sources linked below do not refer to every issue involved, nor do they reflect all Jewish viewpoints on the subject. They do, however, offer an informative introduction to the topic.
Quote: “Interpretation of biblical writings and Jewish law into 21st century reproductive technology is attempting to keep up with the pace of progress. An account of these interpretations is made all the more complicated by the fact that the Jewish religion today, in addition to Orthodox Judaism, has Conservative, Reform, and Liberal branches. Furthermore, the state of Israel has laws which bind its, mainly Jewish, population.”
