Unprecedented demand for infertility treatments has pushed scientific innovation dangerously close to the boundaries of what is ethical. We are only years away from being able to alter human genetics to eradicate disease and to create so-called designer babies - a frightening prospect to many. Robert Winston has spent his professional life at the forefront of this most fascinating and emotive area of science and has been responsible for many of the recent advances in treating human infertility. A Child Against All Odds is both a definitive account and a personal view of modern reproductive technology and the ethical problems that it raises. Hard-hitting, sometimes humorous, always honest, A Child Against All Odds is highly engaging for the general reader and essential reading for anyone facing infertility and IVF treatments.
