This Article discusses potential policies regarding assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs). The initial question is whether ARTs should be viewed as private matters or as issues that affect overall social good. The author explains that this question may be answered by the Supreme Court's interpretation of the principles of procreative liberty. He then examines Supreme Court decisions regarding reproductive rights, including the unstated right to bear children as well as abortion rights. He extrapolates from these cases the Court's possible views on ARTs and what constitutional protections should be afforded reproductive technologies.
