Because a wacko wanted it and an idiot physician was willing to perform it. Government intervention is not the answer. I don’t want the government to be the one setting standards over who can undergo this procedure. Where is that going to lead?
Where’s it going to lead? A background check before doing a procedure implanting some woman with embryos created with the help of some sperm donor. Regulations, etc. Do folks just walk in and adopt a child? At least, this needs to be as tightly regulated as adoption. I’m not sure that it isn’t. It very well might be. Perhaps all that needs to happen is that this one doctor is stripped of his credentials.
Do you want to have a background check before you’re allowed to father a child?
Maybe we can just have the government sterilize everyone who they think would make unfit parents.
This is a single situation which is highly unlikely to be repeated on a regular basis. This doctor should be shamed by his community and, hopefully, this negative publicity will have a negative impact on his practice. He should be investigated to see if he broke laws. But I highly disagree with making legislative decision based on one occurrence.
