Yes, but there are more links to "ART" as a discipline.  (I think the 
scientist who coined this was a follower of Snow.)

"Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is the term coined to describe the 
techniques used to assist conception. These methods have been developed in 
recent decades and offer a treatment alternative for couples unable to 
conceive through natural means. The science has progressed rapidly in ways 
that humankind recently could only imagine. Assisted Reproductive 
Technologies which fall under the category of ART include In-Vitro 
Fertilization (IVF), Embryo Transfer (ET), Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer 
(GIFT), Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer (ZIFT), Intracytoplasmic Sperm 
Injection (ICSI), and Selective Assisted Hatching (SAH). Nearly half a 
century ago it was said that the fertilization of an egg by a sperm cell is 
one of the greatest wonders of nature. . . as a spectacle, it can be 
compared only with the eclipse of the sun or an eruption of a 
volcano.'  http://www.ifwh.org/htm2/fertility.asp
