25 Feb 2019 Vogue Cites California Dominance in Reproductive Technology
Vogue's March 2019 issue spotlighting California as the "center of everything" includes the article, "Fertile Ground," in which writer Jancee Dunn explores the state's role as a fount of advancements in assisted reproductive technology.

Dunn also connects the growing popularity of assisted reproductive technology (ART) with the fact that many women and couples are delaying having children longer than previous generations.
