The permeation of reproductive technologies and reproductive tourism across boundaries of the globe has resulted in a global debate surrounding their moral and ethical viability. The purpose of this paper is to objectively assess the morality inherent in reproductive technologies by examining the perspectives of women seeking them and subjects providing them and by analyzing multiple ethical lenses. It will first aim to determine whether these technologies should be universally accessible to all couples within a given country and whether the private provision of these treatments creates unethical inequities in accessibility. It will then seek to determine whether crossing borders to seek these therapies when they are inaccessible in a given country may be ethically justified.
