Towards a Plurality of Bodily Affordances

Main Article Content

Stefan Lorenz Sorgner


Even though we have moved away from Catholic understanding of procreation, there is still a long way to go to legally and morally accept that procreation can be realised by means of a great plurality of techniques. I will describe four techniques, which potentially or actually offer human beings new procreative options. People who wish to use these techniques often get treated paternalistically in a violent manner and get hindered from realizing their deepest wishes and longings. It is highly questionable whether such regulations are in tune with the basic guidelines of a liberal democratic society. Hence, I argue that still a lot needs to be done in this respect in most countries all over the world.
