The application of reproductive technologies to humans has brought about a radical change in traditional perspectives about sexuality and reproduction. In the past, the field was surrounded by an aura of mystery, which allowed religion to grasp the subject firmly. Now an explosion of knowledge, and a new capacity to control all aspects of human reproduction are beginning to modify attitudes, so that the arenas of sexuality and reproduction are apparently undergoing a process of rapid secularization. As a result, religious solutions to reproductive problems are becoming obsolete and possibly dangerous, since they no longer adequately fulfill the needs of humanity in our modern era.
