Add to that the fact that each year, 80 women who have become pregnant through IVF have abortions. Read that one over again. Back in March 2009, even the liberal "Left" media (are there others?) finally realised what the rest of us had been saying for years.
And now the age limit is to be put up. Again. It was put this time last year as well, when same-sex couples were also given an entitlement. Only under the Conservatives. Of course.
Meanwhile, NaProTech, Natural Procreative Technology, is an ethical, healthy and far more successful alternative to IVF. Unlike IVF, in NaProTech no embryonic children are killed or exposed to harm in the laboratory, and couples’ relationships are strengthened.
As they are also strengthened by Natural Family Planning, which is more effective than anything else if it is taught properly (as is admitted even by the WHO, hardly a Vatican puppet), which involves no poisoning of women in order to make them permanently available for the sexual gratification of men, which can only be practised by faithful couples, and the practitioners of which almost, if almost, never divorce.
