My co-author, Brad Reich, and I have published before in the area we term "Cyberprocreation", using the Internet to facilitate human reproduction. This article specifically addresses the potential parental rights and responsibilities of parties in the rapidly growing embryo donation and surrogacy service markets. Following that analysis, we turn to potential liability for embryo and surrogate providers under causes of action such as warranty, negligence, strict product liability, and breach of contract. We conclude with predictions and recommendation for the future. Our prior Cyberprocreation work has been well received and cited.
