The Human Experiment [electronic resource]

C. Everett Koop is joined by Dr. Arnold Relman, editor of the New England Journal of Medicine and others, in a discussion of the ethics of medical research. The panelists consider how competition for prizes and profits may lead to secrecy and lack of cooperation, the possibility that some tests may harm volunteers, and the need to test new drugs balanced against the needs of people desperate for treatment.

Ice Babies [electronic resource]

Freezing embryos gives people a chance to have children even though they may be faced with a catastrophic illness. This episode introduces Hilary Spanswick, who is in fear for her life because of breast cancer, which signals the end of her hopes of motherhood. There's one option: freezing embryos. It's a risk, as the fertility drugs could encourage her cancer. If it works, it will be her only chance of having a baby. Frozen embryos, however, can lead to problems. Natallie Evans, for example, froze six embryos with her partner, but when they split up, he demanded that the embryos be destroyed. Professor Robert Winston meets Natallie to explore the question of who should own the ice babies.
