The earth is flat.

LiterallyCertain

The earth is flat. My proofs are empirical and logical. I will show that the heliocentric model of the universe is wrong. First round acceptance. Any media publicly available is presentable until such media is proved to be falsified. No ad hominem. Please omit any theoretical mathematical equations. Good luck and I hope we both gain insight into this fascinating subject.

"infertility expert Dr. Howard Jones recalled that prior to IVF, "it was often necessary to sit with a patient and say that we had come to the end of the line. But IVF therefore seemed like a possibility of one more step that would make less frequent this distressing conversation with a patient." "American Experience: TV's Most-watched History Series." PBS.

In Vitro Fertilization should be allowed because it helps infertile couples finally be able to have kids and be happy. Couples can be infertile for numerous reasons. Some couples may want to undergo IVF because it increases the chances of having a healthy pregnancy and child (Smotrich 2012) because the development is done outside of the womb so they can closely monitor their growth (5 Big Pros... 2015)....

In 2012, 1.5% of all the children born in the US had help from in vitro fertilization. The numbers are likely to increase with time (Christensen, "Record Number of Women Using IVF to Get Pregnant")....
