In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) was the Subject of This Year’s Winning Entry for the Prestigious Library of Congress “Discovery or Exploration in History Award”
Date:7/29/2014

ral IVF experts at Reproductive Science Center of New England where Juliana’s mother Linda Hillis works, including Dr. Samuel Pauli, Paula Dwan, RN, and Donna Cunningham, senior embryologist, their findings were presented via an interactive exhibit.

Juliana and Kaylie summarized their project research as follows: The rights and responsibilities associated with IVF and the birth of Elizabeth Carr can be condensed into three major categories: legal, social and ethical. Despite the fact that the Constitution acknowledges the right to procreate as a fundamental right, the government has lacked widespread legislative and monetary support for ART. This raises the question of whether it should be a responsibility of the government to provide assistance to those in need of fertility treatment. Also, advances in reproductive technology now allow up to five people to be involved in fertility treatment, and have extended these opportunities to same-sex couples, which has ultimately redefined the traditional definition of family. Furthermore, the ability of infertile women to receive treatment represents an expansion of women’s reproductive rights and a success in the feminist movement. Finally, religious views or moral beliefs about the ethics of IVF have generated opposition, especially by the Catholic Church. This puts patients in the position to have to choose between being a responsible religious participant and fulfilling their desire to have a child through infertility treatment.

The students were thrilled to receive this esteemed recognition, and Juliana Hillis stated, “I’m glad that Kaylie and I were able to raise awareness about both the scientific aspects of IVF and the history behind the technology. We think it’s important for people to understand how influential IVF has been on society since the birth of Elizabeth Carr, and I believe we succeeded in establishing that fact.”
