Babies of Technology
At least two bio tech firms are asking the FDA for permission to test CRISPR gene editing technology on humans as disease treatment, as early as this year.

But, the fast advancement of this medical technology has some concerned about a lack of standardized controls, especially in the area of so-called designer babies. Multiple parent surrogacy is already putting this issue front and center, and the rights of the children of these reproductive technologies is the subject of the book Babies of Technology.

In Depth - 073017 - The Brave New World of Assisted Reproduction
Advances in medical science and technology have brought the miracle of birth to women and families who may otherwise have gone without children.
And, while there is no denying the great benefits of this technology, there is little regulation over invitro and surrogacy, a private and lucrative global industry, and no policy for protecting the rights of the children of technology assisted reproduction.
That's the concern KCBS Radio's Jane McMillan heard from Doctor Mary Ann Mason, U-C Graduate School professor specializing in child and family law, and the author of the new book, "BABIES OF TECHNOLOGY: Assisted Reproduction and Rights of the Child."

As the national dialogue continues about the best way to deliver health care to every American, access to mental health care often takes a back seat in the discussion.

KCBS Radio In Depth: Babies of Technology
Advances in medical science and technology have brought the miracle of birth to women and families who may otherwise have gone without children.
And, while there is no denying the great benefits of this technology, there is little regulation over the private and lucrative global industry of invitro and surrogacy which allows for choosing specific traits in donor eggs and sperm.
There is also no framework for protecting the rights of the children of technology assisted reproduction.
That is the concern of Doctor Mary Ann Mason, U-C Graduate School professor specializing in child and family law, and the author of the new book, "BABIES OF TECHNOLOGY: Assisted Reproduction and Rights of the Child." Dr. Mason is Jane McMillan's guest in this installment on KCBS Radio In Depth.

Dispelling the Stigma of Mental Illness- A Personal Story
When one in four Americans will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime, why is it often an afterthought in discussions of health care access? The answer, says U-C Professor of Psychology Dr. Steve Hinshaw, is stigma; the same lack of knowledge and understanding society has been anchored with for centuries.
As Dr. Hinshaw tells KCBS Radio's Jane McMillan, what's needed to break the stigma of mental illness is the open sharing of personal stories of everyday people managing their illness and thriving in spite of it. He does just that, sharing his family's personal story in his new book, "Another Kind of Madness, A Journey Through the Stigma and Hope of Mental Illness."
