Soheyla's Choice

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 05, 2005

A woman in England using 21st century contraceptive technology finds she is pregnant with quadruplets. The BBC pounces on the human equation.

Elizabeth Bryan, founder of the Multiple Births Association, told the BBC there were risks in trying to carry multiple babies. She said many of these multiple embryo pregnancies do not go to term, as doctors have to reduce the number to twins or triplets in order to ensure the health of the mother and to increase the survival chances of the babies.

Reduce the number. What a lovely euphemism.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
