The Age of Mechanical Reproduction
by Paul Ford.
When it comes to IVF, in-vitro fertilization, nothing is normal. Your world is upside-down. Your doctor compliments your wife on her monkeys. Then, when every dollar and exertion has gone toward a single hour of hope, it begins to snow.

First came love, then came marriage, then came a ridiculously long and complicated endeavor to get pregnant after a diagnosis of oligoastenoteratozoospermia
requiring in vitro fertilization
to conceive. This birthed the blog
that attacked infertility with humor and snark. And, when she finally got pregnant, then came four unbelievable days
of labor and a spectacular failure of pretty much everyone who was supposed to help. Don't worry, it all worked out just fine

White couple gets black twins, sue IVF clinic.
Experts say a mistake could have occurred in one of three ways.The wrong sperm could have been used to fertilise the right egg, the right sperm could have been used to fertilise the wrong egg, or the embryo implanted in the woman may have been another couple's altogether. Although it is not clear whether another couple has laid claim to the children, legal experts say the judge will be expected to make a modern-day judgment of Solomon on who should be considered the babies' legal parents. This is unploughed legal ground. Is there a fair way to sort this out?
