Why Not IVF?

In an editorial piece for the Star, local reporter David Orentlicher asks that the government start covering In Vitro Fertilization for women who are struggling to conceive. He asks the question - if you are going to "protect" those who can conceive from conceiving, why not help those conceive who can't?

The answer to his question is quite clear - "YOU CAN'T!!!" What I mean by that is if you are going to cover one you eventually are going to cover the other. They are linked at the hip and the agenda is all coming from the same immoral faucet.

It isn't that mandating coverage for birth control, abortifacients, and sterilizations permits some to make a "slippery slope" argument about future coverage of IVF and physical abortions (beyond the chemical ones the Obama team is covering already) - It's all one piece and the two can't be separated.

Covering birth control, abortifacients and sterilizations is not a POTENTIAL slope leading to POTENTIALLY other things - it is the case that once you pass the above sins you are already sledding downhill at 40 mph and the other things will inevitably receive coverage as well.
