The procedure is only the latest in a series of breakthroughs from artificial insemination to frozen embryos that are redefining how we reproduce. What kind of effect will these changes have on society, and on the relations between men and women? Join Melinda Penkava and guests to discuss the implications of these new reproductive choices.
