This middle school Biology quiz examines IVF, or in vitro fertilization. It looks at both the mechanics and the ethics of producing 'test tube babies'. IVF stands for in vitro fertilization and when it was first developed, the newspapers referred to the process as producing 'test tube babies'. The world's first test tube baby, Louise Brown, was born in 1978. Her birth marked the beginning of a new era in human reproductive biology and has offered hope for childless couples worldwide.
