Estate Planning for Users of Assisted Reproductive Technology

"Well, it certainly looks like your DNA.

Collectively, such modes of contraception are referred to as “assisted reproductive technologies” (ART). Decades of technological advances in this field are forcing families to consider difficult issues related to the creation of ART children and the preservation of genetic material that could lead to the creation of ART children.
