I was convinced ... and remain convinced today, that using assisted reproductive techniques to enhance the lives of patients with HIV-1 is appropriate. I ... believe that all parties, including the children born from this technology, benefit immeasurably from our effort, despite the small risk of infection. I have found couples presenting for care are well educated to the benefits and risks involved. They are neither uninformed nor selfish in their pursuit of having biologic children. Rather, I would suggest that they are highly devoted to each other and perhaps more pair-bonded than other couples. After all, individuals with HIV-1 and their spouses face a potentially life-threatening infection everyday. They embrace the opportunity to have biologic children with extraordinary courage, not out of ignorance. (1) Introduction
