On October 24, 1992, President George H.W. Bush signed the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act (FCSRCA) into law.1 Sponsored by then-Representative Ron Wyden (D-OR), the statute set out to establish a national public reporting framework for the clinical outcomes of assisted reproductive technology (ART) programs offering in vitro fertilization and egg donation services.1 Specifically, FCSRCA mandated that by 1994 “each assisted reproductive technology program shall annually report . . . pregnancy success rates achieved by such program” through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and that effective in 1995, the CDC “annually publish and distribute” the same data.1 Also to be publicly reported were the “identity of each embryo laboratory used” and the accreditation status thereof as well as those ART programs “which failed to report . . . as required.”1
