Natural beauty is more important than having make up on. I think that we should embrace whatever we are given by god and not modify it.

Be yourself, embrace it and be confident. Beauty is not so much on the outside but on the inside. Besides that, why should we put chemicals on our face? This might put us to a higher risk...

There are a lot of basic benefits of IVF. There's a good amount of people that are unable to conceive a child, and IVF will allow them to do so. Not only does IVF allow couples to have a child, but single women and same sex couples as well. IVF will also provide them with a sperm donor if needed. If a parent or a woman's IVF cycle is unsuccessful, the embryos from other people may be donated and be used to enable the embryo recipients to have a child. People undergo IVF for several reasons; so...
