For purposes of these instructions, "assisted reproductive technology" (ART) is the
conception of a child via preserved or donated genetic material, i.e., eggs (ova),
sperm, an embryo, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of any sort, or a womb. "Assisted reproduction,"
"assisted reproductive technology," and "artificial reproduction" are all terms for
ART. In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a form of ART.
NOTE: ART is continuing to evolve, and the laws governing the parent-child relationships
that may develop as a result of ART are also evolving. Refer any claim involving ART
that is not covered by instructions in GN 00306.000 for a legal opinion using instructions in GN 01010.815.
