I think we all remember the infamous Octomom Nadya Suleman who broke onto the news scene a couple years ago while pregnant with a record setting eight babies.
Of course all of America, and the world knew she did not magically conceive the babies without help, and as more and more of the story came out we learned that Nadya went through IVF to become pregnant with this record number of babies.
California doctor Michael Kamrava, the man who implanted 12 embryos into Nadya Suleman at one time, is now losing his medical license. But sadly the Octomom case was not the first time the doctor overstepped the medical line. In fact it was the third case which he acted unethically in his profession.
But this story brings serious questions to the table, not only for safety, but federal regulations for IVF which currently are not in place. There currently is no real guide for ethics, or rules when it comes to the IVF procedure, only what doctors personally feel would be safe or acceptable.
In this case, Dr. Kamrava over stepped a serious professional boundary, at least in my opinion when implanting to many embryos into one woman, who we all know now had no real business in an IVF clinic to begin with. Again, purely opinion.
While Nadya insisted on having the 12 embryos implanted, do you think Dr. Kamrava should have followed her wishes?
Do you think there should be better screening for IVF patients and their mental stability, since we saw a serious issue with Nadya?
Chime in… what do you think about this?
