Legal Protection Surrounding Assisted Reproductive Technology

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) refers to the use of technological procedures such as fertility medication, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization and surrogacy to achieve a pregnancy. The body of law that applies to ART in Indiana and around the country is still developing. In some respects, the medical technology has advanced more rapidly than the law that governs these procedures.

When it comes to using assisted reproductive technology, each individual should have an experienced attorney to help the process go smoothly and prepare the agreements that govern the relationships between the parties. At their core, however, these are contractual agreements between individuals. Because of the complexities of these services and the emotions that can engulf them, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can protect your rights and ensure that the process goes smoothly.
