As part of the Minnesota Law Review's Headnote online forum, we respond in this paper to Profs Susan Frelich Appleton & Robert A. Pollak, Exploring the Connections Between Adoption and IVF: Twibling Analyses, 95 MINN. L. REV. HEADNOTES 60, 66–69 (2011), which is itself a response to our article, Trading-Off Reproductive Technology and Adoption: Does Subsidizing IVF Decrease Adoption Rates and Should It Matter?, 95 MINN. L. REV. 485 (2010), http://ssrn.com/abstract=1664501.
We view Professors Appleton and Professor Pollak’s response to our article as both complimentary and complementary. First, they are extremely generous with their praise for our project, which is particularly gratifying given how important their own work has been in the field. Second, and perhaps more importantly, they suggest a number of new tangents and ideas prompted by our project. We first summarize those contributions and how we think they fit with our article. We then very briefly discuss a few instances where we might characterize what we have said differently than they do.
