A Conversation with Dr. Leon Kass: The Ethical Dimensions of in Vitro Fertilization is the edited transcript of a discussion of the ethics and policy issues of research on so-called test tube babies. Dr. Kass is a leading authority on ethical issues in medical research and practice.
In his presentation and in the ensuing conversation with AEI scholars and guests, Dr. Kass suggests that in vitro fertilization raises two larger questions: What should the role of the federal government be in regard to morally questionable or socially problematic research? and should the federal government continue to encourage the highly technological approach to disease and dysfunction represented by such techniques as in vitro fertilization?
