This chapter calls for the democratization of ART. Exposing the many ways in which reproductive assistance is withheld, denied, deprived, and revoked is to also reveal the widespread need and desire for its adoption. The mismatch between the current use and current need for ART motivates these analyses that critique the law and policy that permit access barriers to persist. The actionable recommendations set out herein can help shift the course of ART access to a more democratic future. Even if no such reforms are taken up, the chapter remains hopeful that external factors will coalesce to widen access to reproductive technologies. Global and national changes that, in some instances, are seemingly unrelated to ART will usher in an era of greater availability and access to reproductive assistance.
