We will examine why infertility and its treatment are problematic, and why there should be regulation of this field. An explanation will be given of the technology, from 'simple' IVF to cloning. We will look at choices of treatment, and trace the history of regulation in this country, the passage of the 1990 Act, its effect on other countries, and the 2008 HFE Bill.
