A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE
FERTILITY INDUSTRY

For 12 years, Ms. writer Ann Pappert has been researching and writing about the fertility industry. In a stunning special investigative report for Ms., Pappert details how the field of assisted reproduction has become a very big and very profitable, highly experimental business: "Fertility specialists adopted the practices of mass marketing and sold assisted reproduction like breakfast cereal." She debunks the hype, and takes a long, hard look at the risks women face.
