Making Babies With or Without Sex: New Reproductive Technologies around the World

What was recently considered science fiction is now reality. Now you can make babies without sex! Legal systems around the world are trying to catch up. But …each country has a different legal system. Moreover – those systems contradict each other. What Israel considers illegal, is legal in India. Three people cloning is legal in England, but nowhere else in the world. What happens when people ignore the laws? Can states take children because they disagree with the way they were born?  Can we use assisted reproductive techniques to eliminate genetic diseases? Test tube babies are growing up. Are we ready?
