Public awareness of the biological clock and the reproductive process in general continues to be an important goal of our profession. Just as other medical specialties attempt to increase public awareness of health maintenance and disease-prevention strategies, so must our profession try to make the public aware of the biological clock and of strategies designed to prevent infertility. In contrast to other medical fields, our attempts are hampered by political interference that actively seeks to limit access to all forms of reproductive care. The recent nomination to the Supreme Court of a judge who has been vocal in her opposition to reproductive choice further underscores the ongoing difficulty in providing information as well as increasing access to reproductive care (1).
