AbstractThe rights to reproduce and found a family are recognized as basic human rights. Infertile couples should enjoy the same right to reproduce as those who have the ability to do so without assistance. Both positive and negative rights to access to assisted reproductive technologies are required in order to fully realize the reproductive rights. However, there is a limit to such a claim. The positive right of individuals to have state-funded assisted reproductive treatments has to be balanced against the provision of other societal goods and healthcare rationing. The negative right to acquire access to assisted reproductive technologies by individuals' own resources is also restrained. The barrier to such access is often of a moral nature, the standard of which depends on the values of the society. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
