Ethics and Common Sense for in vitro fertilization procedures

When a Supreme Court Justice was once asked what defines pornography, the reply was "I can't describe it, but I know it when I see it."

The recent octuplet births in California is demanding accountability of the doctor involved in this particular case - and rightly so. As the background facts of this particular case comes to light, it has become nearly impossible to overlook the complete absence of medical ethics and basic common sense by those involved in the decision making process.

Let me preface my remarks by stating that I believe the discovery of the IVF has been a blessing and gift from God for those families struggling with the heartache of infertility.

Sincerely Yours,
