When deciphering between the meanings of procreation and
reproduction, one has to understand the difference between the two. The
definition of reproduction merely means turning out new humans by one means or
another. It doesn’t refer to the two people being partners or united in any
way. On the other hand, procreation is the loving act by which posterity is
generated. It refers to conceiving children in the embrace of their father and
mother with the intent to forming a family.

In the reading from Meilaender’s Bioethics: A Primer for Christians, it is
said, “Like most religions, Christianity has a text. The Bible reveals God’s
intentions and desires of and for the human race, provides insights and
commands for a moral life that is faithful to God” (Meilaender, 2013). It
continues to say, “The locus of Christian ethics, then, begins with the story
of God’s magnificent grace which entered and continues to enter multiple
cultures in which humankind “live[s], and move[s], and have [their] beings” (Acts
17: 28). This refers to the acceptance of mankind to procreation in the intent
of creating their future offspring and frowning upon reproduction. I do not
agree with Meilaender’s opinion. I think that due to the very different
circumstances of each individual, that there is no correct answer on what
should work for everyone. When it comes to same sex partners who what to create
a family, they should not be looked down upon in God’s eyes due to not having
any other choice but to reproduce their offspring with the help of science or
another willing human to donate their sperm, ovary or use of their uterus to
help create them the family they yearn for.

Begotten versus being made is a touchy subject for many.
Traditionally, we and all the other inhabitants of the earth produce our
offspring the traditional begotten way. But sometimes, we call on science when
the traditional way is not working for us for whatever reason. We have created
sperm banks, in-vitro and other petri-dish way of “being made”. It opened so
many doors for scientists to start thinking about how far can they push and
manipulate genetics through sperm banks and cloning. Clearly, the desire to
have a child is one of the most fundamental human drives (Kanes, 2008). Why
should anyone judge another person for using any of these “being made”
reproduction tactics when those using it are just as qualified and entitled to
creating a family as the next. In todays world, we have to think about those
same sex couples who can never proliferate without the help of technology.
