Examines comparative religious ethics concerning gender marriage, parenthood, children, and the relationship of human beings to the "natural". Relates these views to new and emerging reproductive and genetic technologies. Compares the internally diverse perspectives of three major religious traditions with regard to their interpretations of these technologies. Analyzes the impact of particular uses of these technologies on the rights of women and girls. Students cannot earn credit for both REL 473 and REL 573.

The added prerequisites reflect the instructor's experience teaching the course and bring its prerequisites into line with other 400/500-level cross-listed, interdisciplinary REL courses such as REL/WGS 472/572 and REL/STS 471/571. (In fact, prerequisites were specified in the original action creating this course but were never recorded in SIS. This change thus also rectifies that error as well.)
