    Up until about a year ago, I worked at a historic site in the South that included an old house and a nearby plantation. My job was to lead tours and tell guests about the people who made plantations possible: the slaves. The site I worked at most frequently had more than 100 enslaved workers associated with it - 27 people serving the household alone, outnumbering the home's three white residents by a factor of nine.

A male reproductive organ deposited sperm into a female reproduction organ, where it could fertilize eggs - leading to baby ancestral tetrapods, mammals, primates, and eventually humans. The past 60 years have seen this begin to change, first with clinically available artificial insemination and then with in vitro fertilization (IVF).
