dc.description.abstractAlthough the now-defunct Ethics Advisory Board of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare concluded in 1979 that research on in vitro fertilization with embryo transfer was ethically acceptable, federal approval and funding have not been forthcoming. Arguments over the moral status of the embryo, the danger of abnormal fetuses, and the possibility of undesirable applications of research are the major reasons for the delay. While privately funded research has continued, the benefits of wide-scale, federally-funded research have been delayed, and the costs to infertile couples are great. Suggestions for breaking the stalemate are made, though quick action is considered unlikely. (KIE abstract)en
