Do embryos produced by in vitro fertilization (IVF) have the same rights as every human life, as the Pope declared? Legal expert Crockin (Eastern Virginia Medical School) and Jones, a fertility doctor who pioneered IVF techniques in the US, share information and insights into how the courts and lawmakers globally are interpreting rights' issues generated by these medical technologies relating to fertility clinic claims, HIV exposure, and the legitimacy, access to, mixup, storage, and destruction of frozen embryos. The book includes chapters on assisted reproduction-related and abortion-related litigation, and a table of cases.
