PA Assisted Reproductive Technology: Embryos and Equitable Distribution

Through the in vitro fertilization ("IVF") process, medical professionals are able to "cryopreserve," or freeze embryos to use at a later date. This means that the woman's egg has already been fertilized outside of her body, and the resulting embryo is placed in storage for the date and time when the Mother chooses to have the embryo transferred to the uterus of a surrogate, or to the mother's uterus, so that the child can be born. These embryos are often cryopreserved for years until the Mother decides she wants to have a baby.
