  • Overview

    Patients from other countries are coming to the U.S. for fertility assistance seeking In-Vitro Fertilization. In this segment Dr. Maurice Pickard speaks to Debora Spar, author of The Baby Business, on IVF and its economic impact on adoption services. Despite adoption being the more affordable option, with no medical risks to the prospective parents compared IVF's potential for multiple pregnancy, IVF has become a much more sought-after option for aspiring parents. There are currently over 400,000 excess embryos in the U.S. and genetically we know a great deal about them. Therefore the question becomes raised as to whether or not the development will emerge in which prospective parents seek and obtain "embryo adoptions."
