The multibillion-dollar fertility industry is booming, and experimenting with business models that are changing the American family in new and unpredictable ways. Would-be parents seeking donor eggs and sperm can pick and choose from long checklists of physical and intellectual characteristics. Clinics now offer volume discounts, package deals and 100 percent guarantees for babymaking that are raising complicated ethical and legal questions.
"Discounts, Guarantees and the Search for ‘Good’ Genes: the Booming Fertility Business" is from the October 21, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Ariana Eunjung Cha and narrated by Sam Scholl.
