Recent developments in the field of reproductive technology have made artificial insemination a practicable alternative to "natural" procreation within the context of a marital relationship. Artificial insemination, in vitro fertilisation, embryo transfer, and surrogate mothering are some of the techniques that have increased the options that are available to an individual who wishes to create a family in which she or he will be the only parent who will be responsible for the child's upbringing. The fact that Indian courts and legislators have already sanctioned the practise of having children via surrogacy lends credence to the notion that they will likely permit access to the novel artificial reproductive technique through artificial womb facility. IVF and related techniques have been transformed too rapidly and easily from experimental to therapy status, despite evidence that suggests considerable caution is warranted. Unfortunately, the widespread diffusion of IVF has preceded rather than followed firm evidence of its value in extending the reproductive rights of women and couples. Resources might better be directed toward prevention of fertility problems and discovering the causes of infertility . The use of artificial reproductive technology has sparked a significant amount of excitement in western nations. The use of many different approaches as a treatment for infertility issues has gained widespread acceptance in recent years. However, fundamental issues continue to be asked concerning the influence of artificial reproductive technologies (ARTs) on reproductive rights and the distribution of limited medical resources, notwithstanding the fast spread of novel procedures. As a result of this additional shift towards technology-mediated procreation, the challenges we face in terms of law, ethics, and policy will grow much more complex. This article takes a look at these concerns in relation to artificial reproductive technology (ART) known as in vitro fertilisation (IVF), which is a therapy for infertility that receives universal approval.
