IVF – Babies’ Hostile Beginnings

Compare the natural way of procreation to In Vitro Fertilization’s way of reproduction.

In the natural process of having babies a husband loves his wife, the wife submits to the advances of her husband and they share an intimate sexual union that results in the conception of a loved child in the supportive environment of the mothers fallopian tube and then in her womb.  This child is with the mother from the very beginning, nurtured by the mother’s very life blood.

In IVF the wife submits to another person, often another man, doing everything that he says she must to, allowing him to put his sterile instruments into her body to take out her eggs.  The husband no longer initiates but does what the other person tells him to do and masturbates his sperm into a container.  This too is given to the other person, the one who takes control of the making of the child.  The child is made in a glass container along with many siblings in a hostile chemical soup (I say hostile because most of the child’s siblings will begin life, to die shortly after or even to be discarded and die, or to be suspended frozen in liquid nitrogen.)  The child is selected and put into the wife’s womb by the other person a number of days later. read more

IVF – be informed

IFV, or In Vitro Fertilization, is thought by many to be a source of great hope.  Many of us desire to have children.  Too often this does not happen easily or when we want it to.  So, you are in your mid-thirties and have been trying to have children for over a year.  Your doctor sends you to a fertility specialist.  A number of tests are done and no specific cause is found.  It is determined that you understand the process of achieving a pregnancy, a process you and your spouse have faithfully adhered to.  Still no pregnancy.  You are prescribed a medication to enhance fertility.  Six months later, still no pregnancy.  You have read a little bit about IVF.  A friend of yours recently had a child by using IFV.  IVF is what your specialist recommends.  The process seems simple.  Eggs are collected at the right time of the month, as is a sample of sperm.  The egg and the sperm are put together in a petri dish.  The resulting blastocyst is put into the uterus and, given time, a pregnancy is established. read more
