  1. Preserving Children’s Fertility: Two Tales About Children’s Right to an Open Future and the Margins of Parental Obligations.Daniela Cutas & Kristien Hens - 2015 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 18 (2):253-260.

Moreover, the application of certain ethical principles makes the inclusion of some conditions unethical in a privately funded scheme, even (...)
