Free text Madelyn Freundlich (formerly served as executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute) is now policy director of Children's Rights Inc., New York. This book is the fourth in the series produced by the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute and published by the CWLA on ethical issues associated with adoption. The focus of this volume is on the ethical questions raised by medically assisted reproduction, as well as adoption -linking both through the need created by infertility. The author reflects on similarities between adoptees' needs and the needs of children born from assisted reproduction to find out about their origins. How much identifying information about their biological genitors should be accessible to such children? She comments on the lack of screening of parents who apply for medically assisted reproduction, as opposed to the home studies required by prospective adoptive parents. Chapter 5 is on the Market Forces in Adoption and Assisted Reproduction.
