This Article explores the emerging positions that Protestants may have on new reproductive technologies (NRTs). Although there is no central teaching, there are main points of agreement among Protestants and other Christians regarding the morality of using reproductive technology. The author examines Protestant teachings on the meaning of procreation, the good of the resulting children and the integrity of family bonds to show that these technologies are generally morally acceptable, but with certain limitations.
