Of course they had to mention this, because the general public isn't ignorant enough about ART:
"In 2006, a 67-year-old Spanish woman made headlines around the world when she became a mother after using IVF technology to conceive twins. The uproar continued when she herself died only two years later."
We're not all 67 year olds. 99.99% of us are in our 20s, 30s & 40s, aka normal child bearing age. We're your neighbors, co-workers, friends, etc. We live in regular neighborhoods & have regular jobs, most of which do not give us IVF coverage through medical insurance. So why do we need to mention this lady, or Octomom, who are NOT us?
And don't even get me started on the comments.
