Some take longer to find it than others, but when they do there is a sort of “baggage” that some may have to overcome. It would be hard to tell a spouse, or boyfriend or girlfriend about something like infertility. Either way, this is something that can make or break someone’s future. A scientist, Robert G. Edwards, developed a way to avoid such a problem called In Vitro Fertiliz... ... middle of paper ... ...to not only have children, but remove any genetic mistake. The only problem is that you can also add genes to create a certain kind of “superhuman.” Also, IVF is getting more successful, but it’s risks of sick and malformed babies outweigh the successful procedures.
I think the doctors did a good job by doing a uterus transplant with individuals who are living and closely related. I believe that allowed the doctors to have successful results. I do not think the parents of the newborn baby boy should try for another baby. During this procedure the host’s mother cannot keep the uterus indefinitely because they will have to continue to take the anti-rejection drugs, which can cause high blood pressure, swelling, diabetes, and may also raise the risk of some type of cancer. I think this new technique of womb transplantation is taking place in Europe and Asia, but not in the United States because the government would not cover the expenses.
In Vitro fertilization permits for the amalgamation of the male sperm cell and the female egg to happen in a laboratory instead of taking place in the fallopian tubes where this process would ordinarily happen. When looking at in vitro it seems to be a blessing to couples that cannot have children on their own. It seems to be a way for science to triumph over nature. But in that description lays the controversy. To some this procedure is a life giving miracle that provides an opportunity for couples, who are by any other means unable to conceive a child, a second chance at bringing life into this world.
Designer babies are created using In Vitro Fertilization. Using this technique, doctors can fertilize the egg with sperm inside the laboratory using a test tube. Doing so you can reduce the chance of the child being born with a genetic disorder and the parents can actually then on choose the sex of the baby. In some cases couples have used PGD to their advantage to save one of their children. Some babies sole purpose is to be created to save the life of their own sibling.
In vitro fertilisation Infertility, the inability to become pregnant after one year of unprotected intercourse, remains a problem that is faced by many people. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the several assisted reproductive technologies (ART) used to help infertile couples to take in a child. IVF is a process of fertilising eggs with sperm outside of the human body. Once the eggs are fertilised, the resulting embryos are placed in the woman’s uterus in the hope that a successful pregnancy will follow. IVF is the most effective for of ART.
In vitro fertilization usually requires the retrieval of many cells and can take several times to work if it does at all. It can also result in multiple pregnancies. Cloning is only another alternative to reproduction and unlike IVF; it takes very few cells and should work the first time with a single pregnancy making it a more efficient method of reproduction. Some people argue against cloning because they think that it is a way of playing God. But in reality, doctors 'play God´ every day.
Since the saviour sibling must be free of any disease and must a perfect match for the sick sibling, IVF is preferred as it is the safest form of artificial conception. However, the process itself is a major problem, since many feel as if choosing “better” genes artificially is ethically wrong, as parents can choose what genes their child will and will not have. In addition, during the the IVF procedure, surplus embryos are created in order to increase the chance of a successful pregnancy. As a result, the surplus embryos are frozen or killed off. Many who say that human life begins at the moment of conception believe that these is an outrageous act of cruelty, and must be stopped at once.
The morning after pill is great in some ways but what about those who can't afford it or just can't stand giving up something they are responsible for. The morning after pill may be a good idea to some individuals but everyone is responsible for their own actions. If they did not want to take up a responsibility than why did they have sex in the first place. Those who decide to have sex should think about the consequences before they do anything before they have an abortion.
(retrieved on June 12, 2011, from www.medterms.com) IVF was originally devised to permit women with damaged or absent Fallopian tubes to have a baby. Normally a mature egg is released from the ovary (ovulated), then enters the Fallopian tube, and waits in the neck of the tube for a sperm to fertilize it. With defective Fallopian tubes, this is not possible. In vitro fertilization literally means "fertilization in glass." A child born by in vitro fertilization is inaccurately known a "test tube baby."

If IVF in not successful, there are many alternatives to IVF, such as adoption, which is an ideal way to start a family and to also give the child the opportunity to grow up in an a caring environment. If the couple is desperate need to produce a child of their own, alternatives may include; Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT), GIFT is very similar to IVF however, unlike IFV, fertilisation is not attempted in the laboratory. Instead, the combined material is injected into the fallopian tubes where fertilisation will occur.
