Project description

Alternative modes for family creation, e.g. connection websites for people searching gametes or co-parents, offer stakeholders the opportunity to set new conditions and make their own arrangements concerning conception and upbringing. This study will uncover the stakeholders’ moral reasoning (e.g. criteria for parenthood) and the moral structure of these new families, and
develop new concepts of parenthood with related responsibilities.
