9780029118139: Beyond Infertility: The New Paths to Parenthood
From Library Journal:

In 1978, Louise Brown, the world's first "test tube" baby, was born, thus heralding a revolution in fertility treatment that continues today to produce new and more complex reproductive options all the time. While providing increased opportunities to those with impaired fertility, these options also bring with them myriad new dilemmas. This work, written by two highly respected infertility counselors ( Without Child , Lexington: Macmillan, 1988) presents a balanced and sensitive examination of the medical, emotional, legal, and ethical aspects of the "high-tech" reproductive alternatives. Part 1 discusses assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and its variations, while Part 2 addresses third-party parenting options, from donor insemination to surrogacy, as well as the very latest developments in the field, including embryo cloning and microinsemination. The descriptions of this staggering array of treatments, plus their attendant emotional and ethical issues, make for compelling reading. Highly recommended for all infertility collections. For a complete listing of books on this topic, see "Considering the Options: Infertility and Adoption Books," p. 73-76.--Ed.
