"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In 1997 media attention focused not only on the birth of a child conceived with donor eggs by a 63-year-old mother but also on the birth of septuplets conceived as a result of fertility-enhancing treatments. Here, the authors (Beyond Infertility, LJ 4/1/94), who have been involved in the support and education of infertile couples for many years, explore in compelling detail the medical, legal, ethical, and psychological implications of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The first part of the book explains the alphabet of treatments?IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, and ICSI?with a minimum of technical language, also covering pregnancy after ART and pregnancy loss. The second part looks in detail at third-party parenting options?sperm donation, ovum donation, surrogacy, gestational care, and embryo donation. The authors provide guidelines and suggestions for openness with children born as a result of ART, strongly urging truth concerning genetic origins. A list of resource organizations and references completes this informative and well-written book. Essential for anyone considering ART, this is highly recommended for most libraries.?Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Fdn.
