Ethical Use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies

The National Perinatal Association Issues Position Statement on the Ethical Use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies. 

March 17, 2014--For the first time in its history, the National Perinatal Association (NPA), representing U.S. Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) professionals and parents of babies cared for in NICUs, is urging reproductive endocrinologists and health insurance companies to reduce serious health risks resulting from in vitro fertilization procedures. In particular, they urge greater use of the safer elective single embryo transfer now recommended by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
