Abstract and Keywords

For a variety of reasons, assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) have posed significant challenges to regulators seeking normative legitimacy. While some of those challenges relate to the sort of value pluralism common to many areas of life, it has been suggested that the challenge is made significantly harder by the presence of genuinely intractable normative problems. This chapter examines one of the most significant of these problems in relation to reproductive choices, the infamous Non Identity Problem. I examine a number of proposed solutions and regulatory strategies that have been examined to circumvent or resolve such problems, and conclude by suggesting that the extent of the challenge posed by non-identity is just beginning to become apparent.

Keywords: reproduction, regulation, embryo testing, non-identity problem, assisted reproductive technology, ART
