Report on in Vitro Fertilisation and Embryo Replacement
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1983 May 7; 286(6376): 1519.
A report on in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer, prepared by the ethics committee of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, is briefly summarized. The report finds the use of these techniques acceptable in overcoming infertility, and approves of ovum donation and embryo freezing while rejecting the use of surrogate mothers. Recommendations are made for careful record keeping, for follow-up of children born after in vitro fertilization, and on legal issues relating to in vitro fertilization and artificial insemination by a donor. The Medical Research Council's advice on research in this area is endorsed. (KIE abstract)
