Artificial Human Insemination: Report of a Conference held under the Auspices of the Public Morality Council reviews the medical, sociological, psychological, and theological aspects of artificial insemination. This book is divided into 11 chapters that discuss various statements made by some representative of certain sector of the society.

Other chapters describe the situations wherein the method of human artificial insemination is used.

The remaining chapters deal with the advantages and disadvantages of using the method.
