The Thursday Thinker: IVF

The co-founder of the process of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) has died:

British Nobel laureate and IVF pioneer Robert Edwards dies at age 87

The research in the field of Assisted Reproduction continues to grow.  Now IVF is much more successful, “More than 5 million babies have been born as a result of the in vitro fertilization techniques that Edwards helped develop.”  Due to the continued advancements in technology IVF is becoming a viable option for pro-life women due to the success of single embryo transfers and the opportunity to freeze unused eggs for later fertilization.

  1. It may be my only option. Though costly, and I don’t like the idea of a “test tube” baby, as it doesn’t seem natural, it may be the only thing that works for me to have a baby. But I imagine the process will be long and hard, and there will be a lot of waiting, and then I will always worry that I will lose the baby. But, if the outcome is the baby I have been dreaming about, than I would simply just be thankful.
