Abstract:     
The increasing use of assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization, raises new and complex legal issues of parentage and inheritance. This Article examines the various reasons people use assisted reproductive technologies, issues that have arisen due to the use of these procedures, and the ways in which courts and legislatures address these issues. The article concludes by exploring unresolved issues facing children produced as a result of the use of assisted reproductive technologies.
