    go through 35 and 42 cycles Yet the likelihood of a child is almost zero In fact worldwide the rate of success after seven failed attempts is zero or almost zero There is a familiar pattern the three first cycles of IVF have the best chance with success rates rapidly plummeting to none after each new unsuccessful cycle The cumulative rate between the third and the fourth cycle of IVF improves by just 4 4 between the fourth and the fifth cycle by 2 7 and so on between the seventh and the eighth cycle the odds for a live delivery drops to 0 8 Between the eighth and fourteenth cycles the odds of having a baby with IVF is 0 1 per cycle over the age of 40 it is zero The authors call for an evidence based policy on assistive reproductive technologies as Israel s policy of unlimited funding seems profligate and effectively useless In fact it may even enmesh women in the misery of a perseverance trap The authors caustically observe that some IVF practitioners seem to be suggesting that women should continue having endless IVF for the sake of a miraculous event Journal of Health Services

  • Israeli mothers no longer have to adopt babies born via surrogate
    surrogates to adopt their own children Several months ago N and her husband became parents of twins when a gestational surrogate from the Republic of Georgia gave birth N had faced a difficult pregnancy with her first child and doctors told her a second would be too risky Since the twins were born N has been waiting in Georgia for her parental status to be clarified N and her husband like hundreds of other Israeli couples used an overseas surrogate to save money But while the legal status of surrogate children born in Israel was clarified in 1996 those born overseas have been in a grey area until now The Interior Ministry responded to the uncertainty by requiring the biological mothers to adopt the surrogate children when they returned to Israel Judge Shifra Glick who issued the ruling said in her verdict that a biological mother must adopt her natural children is intolerable and defies common sense Haaretz com Mar 7 MORE ON THESE TOPICS adoption Israel law surrogacy Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus comments powered by Disqus Search BioEdge Subscribe to BioEdge newsletter Subscribe to BioEdge RSS feed MOST READ Dutch psychiatric patients may

  • BioEdge: Israeli woman wants own baby to be recognised as triplet of twins born to surrogate
    birth to the first child The NII classified the woman as having given birth to one baby and two additional twins Mothers of triplets are granted around USD 21 000 more than mothers of twins and 3 more weeks of maternity leave This is a very clear case said the woman s lawyer Zohar Barzilay two weeks ago It s triplets who will go to the same nursery school eat the same baby food and are no different than any other triplets After years of trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant the woman decided to hire a surrogate who conceived via IVF Then to the surprise of her doctors she fell pregnant I m disappointed with the NII s rigid approach Barzilay told Haaretz They should have displayed greater flexibility I have no doubt the law was meant to include cases such as this The plaintiff is eligible to be treated as a mother of triplets The NII has stood by its decision The law does not permit such benefits for the plaintiff the NII stated Therefore we will be happy to respect the court s verdict in the case Haaretz com Feb 23 MORE ON THESE TOPICS Israel surrogacy Please

  • Israeli children who sue for being born
    communities with high rates of genetic disease and inbreeding I find it very difficult to understand how parents can go on the witness stand and tell their children it would have better for you not to have been born says Rabbi Avraham Steinberg of the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem What are the psychological effects on the children The current trend in Israel is that the children sue for wrongful life which carries a big award designed to compensate for a lifetime of hardship The issue is aggravated in Israel by a strong pro genetic testing culture There is an entire system fuelled by money and the quest for the perfect baby says Carmel Shalev of the University of Haifa in Israel Everyone buys in to it parents doctors and labs Parents want healthy babies doctors encourage them to get tested and some genetic tests are being marketed too early Genetic testing has enormous benefits but it is overused and misused More pregnancy scans are performed in Israel than in other Western countries including the United States Japan and Germany Israel is also liberal with regard to late term abortion when the fetus is viable New Scientist Oct
