“A Conversation with Dr. Howard Jones Concerning Issues of Reproductive Technology, Bioethics, Religion and the Law” When did you become protected by law? Upon fertilization, heartbeat, quickening, fetal brain waves, or birth? Renowned for his involvement with the first IVF birth in the U.S., the immortal HeLa cells of Henrietta Lacks, and sex reassignment surgery, 102-year old Dr. Howard Jones is no stranger to ethical, moral, religious and legal criticism.
