IVF is Selfish

I confess, I cringe every time I hear about someone going through IVF.

The world is full of babies and children without loving parents. Maybe if infertile couples weren’t so hung up on having their "very own home-brewed genetically-similar” child, more of these kids would have homes.

Adoption is, clearly, the more moral choice. IVF is nothing more than selfish asshats who “need” a baby with their genes.

Family is about LOVE. If you can’t love a child that isn’t genetically related to you, you don’t deserve to have children at all.

Adopt or GTFO.

No. If I was unable to conceive I would try to adopt.

Why shouldn't they have a chance to have their own? To experience being pregnant?

Adoption is hard. Takes forever, and is possibly more expensive. And if you have your own children, maybe you know how important that bond is to bare your own flesh and blood. If you cannot have children I am sorry.
I have different views on IVF, but I do not feel the way you do.

I do think adoption is the better choice but I think most people want a child who looks and have character traits from them. Also many women want to carry a baby and feel their child growing inside them. Adoption maybe SELFLESS but IVF is not SELFISH.

Maybe your selfish too for having your own children instead of adopting kids.

Lol
So why do YOU need children with your genes? Because you can?
