This chapter investigates what, if anything, is wrong with the quest for the perfect child. It will examine the extent to which there is a genuine need to regulate artificial reproductive technologies and suggest some alternatives to the current legislative framework before briefly focusing on an area associated with the use of ARTs that has not been assessed by the other authors in the collection, namely post menopausal pregnancy.
