Many arguments have arisen with the growth of the animal rights movement such as the difficulty of enforcing an abolition of animal testing.

IVF can not only allow couples to have children who would otherwise be unable, but also make the chances of conceiving more likely and possibly the offspring more healthy.

IVF is a good choice and a positive idea to keep in the world because it allows those who aren't able to reproduce, to be able to have a child. While adoption is available, it is not the same in the sense that the parents own genes are able to be put into this new life form....

This allows for the possibility of the production of a fetus to increase and for a specific outcome of the fetus to be achieved. People undergo IVF in order to still be able to conceive a fetus through fertility drugs due to disabilities whether within the male sperm or female eggs....
