Abstract:     
Scholars and the President’s Council on Bioethics have called for regulation of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that emulates the regulatory system in the UK especially in regard to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA). The HFEA has complete authority over fertility clinics and human embryo research in the UK and has been shown to adapt to emerging technologies.

This article compares the United States’ and UK’s systems in regards to ART. It argues that the American system is merely a patchwork and is essentially unenforceable. However, the article also considers the history of each county’s reproduction policies to show the difficulties in establishing an HFEA style framework in the U.S.
