Meilaender has very interesting thoughts on procreation and reproduction which directly relates to being begotten versus being made. Firstly, he talks about the advances in reproductive technology that has taken this branch of medicine by a storm. In the middle of this medical landmark, he begins to ponder on how these changes shift procreation to reproduction. “The shift from ‘pro-creation’ to ‘reproduction’ is in part a manifestation of human freedom to master and reshape our world.” (Maeilaender, 2013). He continues to state that this shift to technology removes the biological bond that unites generations which people find meaning and significance. There can be a disconnect in this kind of situation versus being born out of love. Being born out of love or being begotten as he explains in his book is the result of “love-giving has been life-giving” and “A child who is thus begotten, not made, embodies the union of his father and mother.” (Meilander, 2013). Taking out the love out of the equation becomes ‘making a baby’ as per the author. He attributes procreation and being begotten to the teachings of God including love and how children are gifts from God which are a result of the union of two to form a life being giving a part of themselves to give birth to a child. In my opinion, I agree with his stand on procreation versus reproduction. I think I can understand why he thinks that procreation has shifted to sheer reproduction as the artificial ways of reproduction may take out the biological part of procreation. I think there is definitely a place for these type of advancements (such as couples who are not able to have kids, although adoption is also an option.” I also agree that children are begotten by their parents with all the love that they share between each other, the child is a living proof of that love.
