Last month a woman in Houston gave birth to eight babies, setting a record for the largest multiple live birth. The birth was termed a success, but some said this example of the power of modern medicine is a cautionary lesson. A panel talks about the latest advances in fertility therapies and the ethical questions they raise.

Guests
