This concluding chapter summarizes the book's key themes and presents some final thoughts. This book is about comparing the legal treatment of children of passion with that of children of science. It shows that while the child of passion ends up with two legal parents responsible for providing him or her with financial support, children of science have not been treated as well. Instead of ensuring that children of science have two parents, the law is such that those children may end up with one or no legal parent. The consequence is that the children are left without adequate financial support. In order to promote the best interests of children of science, the law needs to treat them on par with children of passion.

Keywords:   paternity, legal treatment, parent-child relationship, children of passion, children of science, best interests
