Hey all!


I was reading a blog the other day and the author claimed that if you were "pro-choice" than you also support women's access to fertillity treatment.

I was thinking your post was going to go the other way.


I'm certainly astounded at the hypocrisy of being strongly anti-choice, but ok w/ IVF ... which carries a real risk of loss of embryos through failure of implantation or through the freeze/thaw process.


I am pro-choice, and I do support the right to use reproductive technology, but I don't know that that means I have to support public financing of such use.


Whoever was supervising the assistive technology for the mom of the octuplets was asleep on the job.

Exactly! in the case of the "CA 8" the women claimed to be "pro-life", yet she risked HER own life and the very lives of her pups by carrying 7-8 at one time?


I'm all for RESPONSIBLE us of reproductive technology, but in this case . . it is a sad abuse.

Funny...a woman with 6 kids and a heck of a lot of instability in her life can get IVF with 8 fetuses.

A 28 year old married woman who is childfree by choice can't get a tubal ligation.

Evidently the "WTF" fairy is visiting us again...

If *one* wants a child bad enough they'll do anything. From what I understand some (most?) insurance companies will pay for certian amounts of and types of IF treatment including Clomid, IVF & IUI. So if *you* (general)want to use your money and your insurance to create a child. More power to you. I doubt she used state aid to fund this little venture, from what I read she was well educated (albet seriously screwed up in the head) and probably paid for insurance that helped fund her desire to continually procreate.

Sadly, in her case, getting her tubes tied would not prevent her from having any more children.

Personally, I have a problem with IVF where donor material is used. If it's not going to be genetically yours (or his), why not just adopt?

Saying that though, I would never support legislation making that illegal. Like abortion, it's not my right or responsibility to make that choice for anyone else.
