Course Pack: “The Serious Health Decision These Women Are Ready to Talk About: Eight Women Share Their Abortion Stories”

(Welch, 2009)

I guess because I never really paid attention to (ART) Assisted Reproductive Technology information. I knew In Vitro costs a pretty penny, but I did not know how that it was per cycle. There’s a 50/50 chance that you could spend anywhere from $10,000-$25,000 and not become pregnant. I’m still blown away by that. That just goes to show that couples (and some singles) want to have a baby at any cost.

I was equally shocked at the story of the frozen embryos. I remember looking at a T.V. show where a female wanted to have a baby by a certain guy and she wanted to try to freeze his sperm. I find it weird that the Gipson’s selected an embryo that had been cryopreserved for 24 years. In essence (to me) they are raising a 24 year old child. I know its a weird way of thinking that. I’m marveled that Baby Emma was born without any birth defects, etc. after being frozen after all that time.

• I had no idea that IVF cost $10,000-$25, 000 per cycle. On average IVF comes successful after the third cycle, that is over $30, 000. In other words, about half the time, IVF succeeds after three attempts. Prior to three attempts, that number is lower. That’s a lot of money to spend on something that is iffy. I did some research to find if insurance companies cover this procedure and this is what I found, only 15 U.S. states currently have laws requiring insurers to offer coverage for infertility. Most patients will need to make their case to their insurance company to get any portion of IVF covered. Basically, it’s not definite that they will cover the procedure. WOW!!!
• Pornography is a major industry in the U.S and around the world. Pornography revenues about $13 billion in the U.S annually. I had no idea people were still paying for pornography. This really shocked me.
