I understand you believe strongly in reproductive freedom, Carola. But I don't think I'm jumping to any conclusion about how she conceived. Her mother has said it was IVF. Every news report says it was IVF.
I have not judged the woman, her marital status, her ethnicity, or financial situation.
I have only said that the Dr. is irresponsible for implanting a woman with 8 embryos because it is very dangerous to her and the babies. In many medical situations - we regulate what Drs do to ensure the safety of the patient. I'm not making this an issue about reproductive rights, but about Drs. engaging in behaviors that put their patients' lives at risk unnecessarily.
But what I am saying, Cindi, is that we don't know that the doctor implanted 8 embryos. He could have implanted a lot less and they split as they do with identical twins.
I am only suggesting to wait to hear the story from the people who were actually involved, like her or the fertility doctor before making judgements based on speculation or what we hear in the media. Now as to her Mom, if she is anything like my Mom, I wouldn't hold my breath on correct information. My Mom gave a friend of mine "information" about my current treatment and it was not anywhere close to what I am actually doing. Go figure!
