Test Tube Families - new book

Cahn Family Law Prof Naomi Cahn of George Washington has a new book from NYU Press: TEST TUBE FAMILIES.

Here's a bit from the publisher's materials:

Incorporating real-life stories to illustrate her arguments, Cahn provides specific suggestions for legal reforms. The book sets out a series of controversial proposals, including an end to donor anonymity and a plea for states to clarify parentage decisions. She also calls for the federal government to regulate ART processes to ensure that donors are adequately protected against exploitation, that recipients receive the gametes they have been promised, and that the market functions ethically as well as efficiently.

It certainly looks like a book worth reading.  And for Family Law Profs teaching courses with a writing component, it seems a great book for a student essay-review.
