External Human Fertilization: An Evaluation of Policy
Science. 1983 Oct 14; 222(4620): 127-133.
A review is provided of developments in human in vitro fertilization (IVF) during its first five years. Efficacy, safety, costs, demand and supply, and feasible extensions of the basic procedure are discussed. The authors contend that, while Australia and Great Britain have made progress toward formulating public policy on IVF, efforts in the United States have not gone beyond a 1979 report and recommendations issued by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's Ethics Advisory Board. Given the ready clinical and public acceptance of IVF, there is need for an oversight mechanism at the federal level, perhaps via a forum concerned also with the overlapping area of human genetic intervention.
