A new documentary called "Fighting for Fertility" examines the complexities of human reproduction and emerging technologies that may assist those having trouble becoming parents. Infertility is becoming recognized as a growing health crisis faced by more and more Americans, affecting about 10 percent of adults in the United States. About 100,000 of those individuals are turning to in vitro fertilization (IVF) each year. The hour explores these topics from the perspective of actual couples and singles who are exploring their options in becoming parents.
