The use of technology-assisted reproduction help to conduct testing of pre-implantation stage embryos for genetic defects. This technology has been adopted to help couples whose potential offspring are at risk of having severe Mendelian disorders and chromosomal abnormalities. Besides, the technology boosts the offsprings’ immunity that helps mothers deliver healthy children. Also, the number of people born with various inherited disorders is minimized; hence, the children’s health is positively affected. Pre-implantation state embryo ensures that children born are in good shape. Thus, their life span is posed to be longer. Therefore, it is good for parents suspecting their genetic composition to undergo the process and ensure that their children’s health is prioritized.
Technology-assisted reproduction facilitates sperm and egg donation. California cryobank, one of the largest sperm banks in the United States, help women to access the sperms of highly fertile men (Daniels 1). The ability to access donated eggs and sperms has given way for alternative family formation (Daniels 1). In a situation where the man is infertile, his wife can get the sperm from various donors, and the family will still be complete. Therefore, technology has created a better environment for the creation of families. The same happens when a woman is infertile and can get an egg donor and carry the pregnancy. Some of the qualities to consider when determining sperm donors include ethnicity, physique, and level of education (Daniels 7). Besides, technology-assisted reproduction help women to back them eggs until they are ready to carry the pregnancy and have children (Waldby 474). The practice is common among single women between 30 to 40 years in the United Kingdom. The process has been of great benefit to many people in the United States and globally.
Technology has also played a huge role in ensuring safe abortion practices and giving old women a chance to conceive fresh eggs. The law regarding the legality of abortion has been at the center of discussion. The European Union agreed to legalize abortion and advocated for safe pregnancy termination (Heino et al. 4).Advancement in technology make it easier for girls and women to access safe abortion methods. Nonetheless, as women get older, their eggs get older as well (Friese et al. 5). Some even think when they late getting pregnancies, they are infertile. However, with the introduction of technology assisted reproduction, women can acquire fertile eggs and get babies. Moreover, women who are infertile are subject to stigmatization (Inhorn et al., 1). However, however, they can have eggs from donor and carry the pregnancies.
