The role of the reproductive technology clinic in the imposition of societal values

Abstract
The evaluative process of preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) that accompanies in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures is a "standard of care" implemented in order to increase the likelihood that a genetically "healthy" or nondisabled baby will result from pregnancy. PGS is also employed when maternal age is determined to be a risk factor, especially when "abnormal" embryos are perceived to be the cause of spontaneous abortion. The scope of genetic information currently available for examination and evaluation within the PGS process is rapidly expanding, along with the notion of what is considered a "genetic risk." In order to receive treatment for infertility, a woman must consent to the stipulation of the ..
