  • BioEdge: Hers to choose
    the second time with twins At one stage she miscarried which distressed her immensely even though the abortion did not regarding the miscarriage I mourned not because I thought it was a death of a child exactly but because I really wanted to have a child and I thought I was having one and then that opportunity was gone Then unexpectedly she fell pregnant again She opted for an abortion convinced as Cosmopolitan notes that a person should be able to choose if she wants to end a pregnancy The very idea of having another child at that point was terrifying to both of us We had two 1 year old babies and we had two older children We were both working There was no way There was no energy period at that time We were holding on by our fingernails How could she justify the abortion of a naturally conceived child when she had endured the agony of IVF It s a good question she says It s like saying Well you really wanted a Snickers bar this morning and then you ate three Snickers bars and now how can you not want a Snickers bar There s one right here It s like Well yeah I really wanted one this morning but I have three now and it s more than enough I don t need to have another one of my own because I understand that that baby is only a baby for a year and they grow up and they still need things for 18 years and I already have enough on my plate with the four that I have MORE ON THESE TOPICS abortion IVF pro choice ethic This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish

  • New study reveals dramatic decline in IVF success for older women
    the large study involving 4 195 women and 5 841 IVF cycles are were presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology ESHRE Reflecting on the results Dr Devesa remarked women of 44 or older should be fully informed about their real chances of a live birth Professor Adam Balen from the British Fertility Society says the study points to a broader sociological problem It is clear that fertility declines with age as demonstrated in this study of pregnancy rates after IVF treatment This is not new but a clear message from this and other related studies is that women may not be fully aware of the dramatic decline in their fertility in their mid to late thirties and so we need to better inform our young women about their potential fertility and enable them to both establish their career and have a family We should put the family back into family planning and support young mothers with their careers at the same time MORE ON THESE TOPICS egg freezing family infertility IVF This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it

  • BioEdge: What the world needs is young dads
    children later in life additional disabled children could eventually lead to a significant burden on the economy and might even decrease the evolutionary fitness of the human race This makes the age of paternity a serious ethical problem he says He proposes four solutions health education to promote earlier fatherhood incentives for young sperm donors and state supported universal sperm banking and eventually human germline modification ie eugenics Dr Smith favours sperm banking He envisages a society in which 18 year olds will be asked to bank their sperm in preparation for future fatherhood via artificial insemination Ideally therefore sperm could be taken on a voluntary basis from all young men with AI becoming the norm for procreation To be successful this would require state funded infrastructure support along with educational publicity approaches to encourage young men to participate If this form of society wide sperm banking were to be widely adopted and repeated throughout successive generations it would have marked benefits for the human gene pool over the long term This approach may appear radical or intuitively unwelcome to some in that it would entail a wholescale move away from natural conception However a societal shift of this kind does not seem to be open to serious objection on ethical grounds As well society should curb procreation by men who are over 40 This approach if successful would undoubtedly have benefits in terms of maximising health and reducing mutational burden MORE ON THESE TOPICS fatherhood IVF new frontiers sperm banks This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media
