Making Babies (#1717)
FRONTLINE examines the revolution in reproduction and the entrepreneurial atmosphere that imbues the practice of infertility medicine today. On the cusp of a new millennium, we can now visit the Internet and choose sperm and egg donors by their genetic profiles. And soon, cloning will do away with the need for sperm altogether. The program looks at how these new technologies hold great promise, but they usher in pressing questions regarding the very meaning of family. [56 minutes]
