As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Like the BBC reports, the new fertility laws in Italy seem to frustrate many couples who can't have children without medical help. Well.... a big and huge well...
I must admit, two hearst beat in my about that. On the one hand I am a believer in the theory that one has to do all what is possible to help people who want to have children, on the other hand I notice this arrogant attitude of a woman who doesn't have such problems asking myself why people just *have* to have children if they can't and if so why they can't adopt one of the so many poor children who don't have a home.
I'm not yet through with thinking about it.
This fertilizing stuff is hard in so far that embryos can get killed, just because they are "too many", which is in my book not a good reason. On the other hand I'm a firm believer in the right of a woman to deciede for an abortion. And even when for me the reasons are "better", the embryo dies never the less. So death is death.
To forbid the fertilizing or to restrict it like Italy seems to do is something that has really something old fashioned and however I see it, the couples are sad about it. I know women who desperately wish for a child and the suffering can destroy relationships.
So, as above... I'm not yet sure, what the lesser evil is. What do you think?
