The Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to a smart fellow who pioneered in vitro fertilization. The Vatican does NOT approve since, apparently, they believe that their god believes in only making babies via doin’ da nasty. Any reproduction not achieved by bumping uglies is not approved by their deities. Non-copulating procreation . . . well, you get the idea.
“As early as the 1950s, Edwards had the vision that IVF could be useful as a treatment for infertility,” which affects about 10 percent of all couples worldwide, the committee said.
“He worked systematically to realize his goal, discovered important principles for human fertilization, and succeeded in accomplishing fertilization of human egg cells in test tubes (or more precisely, cell culture dishes). His efforts were finally crowned by success on 25 July, 1978, when the world’s first ‘test tube baby’ was born,” the committee said.
His work has led to the birth of about four million babies, the committee said in praising his work.
10% of the worlds’ couples, eh? I wonder how many of them are cat-licks? I wonder how many of those 4 million babies born because of IVF are cat-licks? That’s a lot of potential collection-plate revenue, Popey-butt, you horse’s ass!
