Embryo Culture: Making Babies in the Twenty-First Century
Beth Kohl (au)
In the U.S., 17% of couples are infertile, and about 100,000 pregnancy attempts are made each year. In this account of her struggles to bear children, Kohl leads the reader on an up-close-and-personal tour of fertilization in America and the ways in which science and miracle, technology and faith, converge to create life in the 21st century. Along the way, she wrestles with a new world of medical ethics: Should she “selectively reduce” the number of embryos successfully implanted in the womb in order to prevent a potentially complicated pregnancy? How much genetic testing of fertilized eggs is too much? What is she supposed to do with the seven embryos left over from the IVF process? “Will completely revise how we see modern motherhood.”
