Ethical and Legal Considerations for International Reproductive Tourism
With the rapid development of international medical tourism and the advancement of artificial reproductive technology in Taiwan, more and more foreigners travel to Taiwan to seek help from artificial reproduction. However, unlike artificial reproduction in the home country, transnational reproductive tourism may involve differences in legal norms, ethical concept, and public opinion in different countries, resulting in difficulties of life after returning home country, as well as impaired children’s rights and interests. If there is any dispute on executing reproductive health care, the rights and interests of the recipients will also be affected by different national legal systems. Therefore, this article will collect different ethics and legal systems, and further review the norms of our country’s laws and regulations in order to provide a direction for system improvement.
