This paper takes a look at the artificial method of reproduction, in vitro fertilization, or IVF. Reasons why one might turn to IVF are listed as well as the usual pre-requisites clinics doctors might require before IVF treatments can commence for a couple. The author describes the process of getting IVF treatments and also touches on the objections that some Christian groups have regarding IVF.

The Process

From the Paper:

"In Vitro Fertilization is an artificial method of reproduction, usually used when other attempts at assisted reproduction have been tried without success. In Vitro fertilization usually involves ripening the female's eggs, then removing them from the body, and then fertilizing them outside of the female's womb. The eggs are then replaced within the womb; several are usually inserted at once, since this makes it more likely that a pregnancy will result."
