Description

Another project was under way at the same time by Rock and Miriam Menkin that focused on in-vitro fertilization. Gregory Pincus had previously performed successful in-vitro fertilization studies with rabbits earlier in his career at Harvard. The project gave hope to infertile couples, but some also feared the future implications of this “fatherless” technology.
