What I Feel About I.V.F
I know some will say I would feel different if I could not have had children naturally, but I say I would feel the same.
I.V.F is wrong as far I am concerned, as is cloning and swapping or chopping bits of our bodies, yes even if it is for health reasons.
I agree it is sad for those who want children and find they cannot have them, but if we are born not to have children, there is a reason for that. Man has interfered in matters such as this for too long, yes I agree, a lot of times for very well meaning reasons, but even so the downsides are enormous.
At present a debate is on as to whether I.V.F.children should or should not know the donor that helped create them; I say ofcourse they should and should have done from the start.A child does not ask to be born,we decide,we want a child.The child has every right ,to know itís parents at all times,yes all times.Obviously when I.V.F was introduced the great powers did not think through the effect of anonymity on the child when it starts asking that question about itís origin !.
If we are going to play God,creating life,keeping life going when nature or life deems it over or fading,then we must be totally open and honest to the recipicants.There is too much hypocrisy within our society regarding medical interference;it is all right to perform a heart transplant or even to resuscitate a person when the pulse stops,but it is not all right for a person who is terminally ill wanting euthinasea..we cannot allow one without the other.I believe both are wrong!
I donít believe in I.V.F,we canít all have children,just as we cannot all have blue eyes,a wealthy bank balance,a child who is not physically or mentally impared,or a life that lasts 80 years! It is time to stop this folly with life,with nature,with plants and animals as well!It is these processes that are having a massive impact on our world;undoing the natural order of things.Nature is to be lived with,not fought against.
We must learn to appreciate what we are born with,what we have and to live happily with that,it sickens my heart to hear of the mess all this interference is having.
