Response “C” is most ethical as compared to other responses because the functions of the free market are acknowledged that market is free of any form of biased but it is the actions of both the sellers and buyers that make the market be biers. If the seller stops providing certain products that are considered unethical, then such issues will not exist. Consequently, the demand by the buyers as argued by Dr. Reynolds may force the sellers to avail the wrong products and services into the market. This means that the it is the nature of human wants that makes the free market braise.
In reproduction in the current century, test-tube babies are common and as explained by Dr. Reynolds that the sperms fertilize the already harvested eggs leading to the development of infants. Human cloning is another current technology that is so common in both developed and some developing counties. It is the demand by individuals who are unable to give birth as well as carry the pregnancy, which keeps this kind of market going. This, therefore, means that if buyers for such services are unavailable, then sellers will lose interest leading to its continuous use.
The unethical issue here is the use of the foster mother as argued out by the most article. Renting a womb show the desperation of a woman to earn a living despite the dangers that come with pregnancy. A mother may in the process of a delivery pass on leaving his children as orphans while the other couples who required her services remain unaffected physically. Ethically, a mother is expected to maintain her dignity in the society of having children with her husband as a biological father, and the community disregards those who go out of societal expectation.
On the other hand, infertile couples have a chance to have children thanks to the foster mother. The society also respects couples that raise children of their own hence without the technology they may remain childless. The issues of the free market for ethical reproduction issues has two sides. The existence of the market is due to the presence of willing buyers. To adders, the ethical issues in reproduction, the existence of the market should not be blamed but the biological and societal needs that should be met such as the need for children that cannot be replaced.
