assisted reproductive technologies, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, Jewish law, halakhah
This Article attempts to untangle Jewish law regarding assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), namely artificial insemination with husband's sperm, artificial insemination with donor sperm, and in vitro fertilization. The author examines teachings by prominent Jewish law scholars and clarifies basic schools of thought regarding each method. He explores Jewish law prohibitions on incest and adultery and the laws regarding legal parentage and lineage of the child and explains the consequences of ARTs on those laws.
