I agree with the previous post. Thanks to the Suleman debacle, the American public and the rest of the world learned that the guidelines of no more than 2-3 embryos are there for a reason. These guidelines are there to keep mothers and children safe from unnecessary risks. Now that everyone knows that this particular mother had implanted in her at least 3 times the medical guidelines, the element of "surprise" and "miracle" is greatly diminished. In Britain, a study was done that solidly proves having excess embryos implanted doesn't achieve fertility success. So, why did she and her doctor decide on excess embryos? Why shouldn't this be viewed as a form of child abuse?
Besides, has anyone ever really looked at a premature infant hooked up to machines while the tiny organs finish developing enough to leave the hospital? This can't be a comfortable experience. Make no mistake, those helpless little mites are in pain and suffering...and all because a reckless doctor and mother took unnecessary risks. How can this be thrilling to anyone? I don't feel delighted when I see children suffer needlessly, for the sake of someone's greed.
