Developments in medical technology have made it imperative for the law to respond to the new controversies emerging from current reproductive practices. This is particularly true in Nigeria where there has been virtually no legal reaction to this phenomenon. In the article the author highlights a few of the impediments on the road to a smooth legal regime for the new assisted reproductive technologies.
