An essay examining the ethical, medical, and legal issues surrounding Nadya Suleman's delivery of eight babies in California in January 2009 is presented. It states that Suleman gave birth to her babies through in vitro fertilization (IVF) which was not often employed to transfer six embryos to a woman. The author is critical of the physician's observation of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) guidelines. The practice of fertility clinics, which monitors both patient fertility and physical readiness to gestate a baby, is also analyzed.
