Not being able to conceive a child is a huge sorrow for many potential parents. If the parents meet certain criteria, as perhaps not having at least one biological child already or meeting certain criteria for being able to support a child, then it might be good to have public funding for IVF treatments.
While it may cause the infertile couple personal grief that they are unable to conceive, it is not the obligation of society to supply them with a child. If ever this were to become a real policy, it would only make sense to have reproductive procedures such as abortion be publicly funded as well because if a woman can use public funds to make herself pregnant, another should be able to use the same resources to make herself not pregnant...
In theory, everyone should have the children they desire, no
matter what it costs. In practice though, In Vitro Fertilization treatments are
extremely costly. If public funds are spent on IVF, there will be much less
money left for children’s health care, public health, immunizations and senior
care. Unfortunately, expensive advanced fertility treatments must remain a
luxury that potential parents pay for themselves.
No, I do not believe that there should be public funding for IVF treatment. Unfortunately for some, they were not made to have children. There are other options such as adoption that are out there that can assist with those issues. If have the money to pursue IVF treatments then you can go that route.
There should not be public funding for IVF treatment. As sorry as I am for couples who are unable to conceive a child, it is not the responsibility of the public to ensure that every couple can produce a baby. There are other options for childless couples such as adoption, surrogacy, and foster children. Sometimes you can't have everything you want. There are many childless couples who are fine with having no children. You just have to make the most of the hand you are dealt. If you want it and can afford IVF, great, but the public should not be asked to fund it.
I do no believe there should be funding for something like IVF treatments. Making the public pay for a treatment is ridiculous. Having children is not a right, it is a privilege. A privilege not everyone will have the chance to have unfortunately. But even if that is the case, public money should not be used for such a special treatment.
