From IVF to immortality : controversy in the era of reproductive technology by Ruth Deech( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The UK has played a unique role in the development and regulation of reproductive technologies, and has been at the forefront of controversy over 'saviour siblings', designer babies, reproductive cloning, and embryo research. This book provides a clear and simple account of the techniques involved in assisted reproduction and embryo research, and discusses the legal and ethical implications of some of these technologies, illustrated by compelling descriptions of real-life cases. The book also addresses the ways in which reproductive technologies are regulated; critically examining the role of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and comparing the UK's approach with that of other countries. Finally, it contemplates the possibility that some of our most deeply held assumptions about human nature may be called into question by further developments in stem cell research and fertility treatments."--Book jacket

Treatment for infertility is strictly regulated in Britain so British women past childbearing age who are determined to have a child, or those seeking gender selection may go abroad to get the treatment they want. Other nationalities, however, come to Britain. The programme follows the fortunes of people in different circumstances who all want fertility treatment not available in their own countries. A Middle-Eastern couple, both infertile, require donor eggs and sperm, a form of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) which is forbidden by Sharia law. Any child born from donor sperm could be disinherited. A British couple, the Mastersons, already have four sons but their only daughter was killed. They desperately want another daughter. And Jenny Jones, a single woman past childbearing age, recalls her unsuccessful efforts to obtain fertility treatment in Italy. The Middle-Eastern couple have already had one child through IVF treatment in Britain and want a second child who will have the same genetic parents. Jenny Jones began her search for fertility treatment in 1992, aged 57 years; she found a clinic in Italy run by Dr. Severino Antinori but her treatment was suspended following adverse publicity. A second attempt at a different Italian clinic in 1994 was also unsuccessful. Although in her mid-sixties she persists in trying to find a clinic to treat her and advertises for an egg donor. The Mastersons experience many difficulties in pursuit of treatment in Rome. Success seems likely at last but the fertilised egg is male. They cannot afford another attempt and return home to start a campaign to persuade the Human Fertility and Embryology Authority to lift the ban on gender selection. The Middle-Eastern couple are also unlucky - IVF treatment does not result in pregnancy. The programme shows the frustration and expense involved in pursuit of IVF which has a success rate of below 20%

The baby market( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Part Two of this trilogy examines further developments in reproductive technology including the IXY technique. The birth of Louise Brown in 1978 set in motion an international industry in surrogate babies, beset by ethical dilemmas. Egg 'broking' emerges as a new, lucrative trade, while legislation hurries behind, attempting to place curbs on techniques and transactions which have already found a place in the market. Children can now be born to a couple without a genetic inheritance from either partner. Children can be genetically tailored to requirements. Men unable to produce mature sperm can become fathers by the surgical extraction of immature sperm cells; and eggs from two women can be mixed to enhance the chances of a successful pregnancy. No one knows what the effects may be on the child. Ruth Deech (Human Embryology and Fertility Authority) expresses her concern
