Human in Vitro Fertilization
Tiefel, Hans O.
JAMA. 1982 Jun 18; 247(23): 3235-3242.
In vitro fertilization is analyzed as a form of unnatural procreation and also in terms of the risks to both mother and child. The morality of risk taking and the right to have children are explored. Other issues considered are the moral implications of abortion of defective fetuses, freezing of embryos, and nontherapeutic research on embryos, as well as decision making in the use of federal research funds.
