Infertility has long been a problem for many couples wishing to have a child. However, the development of assisted reproductive technology, particularly over the last few decades, now offers hope to those suffering from infertility. This book describes the various ARTs, such as artificial insemination, fertility drugs, microsurgery treatments, surrogacy, egg donation and in vitro fertilization, as well as the ethical questions involved with the techniques such as embryo reduction and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
"For students studying ethics or science, this book will provide concise, clear information for reports...teens will find understandable, complete explanations for their
assignments or clarification if there are fertility issues within their families."
