Test-Tube Babies



It is all about technology. A total of 20 test-tube babies were born in a single day at the Sudha Test Tube Centre, Erode, Tamil Nadu India, which was a record in the country. A total of 12 women became proud mother of these babies, 16 of them twins. The babies were delivered through Cesarean section. The women were in the last stages of pregnancy. Doctors at the centre said that the babies weighed between 2.2 and 3.5 kg and their mothers were all in good conditions. Doctors pointed out that the mothers suffered lack of eggs, and ovarian failure or defective fallopian tubes. Through intra cytoplasmic sperm injection technique, all the eggs were fertilised.

Difficult to understand. On one part India has too many births and does everything to reduce it and on the other side there are tube babies ???

It doesn't matter how big the population is, it's in human nature to want to have children. Some women go through hell to have a child. One of my dearest friends have had 11 miscarriages and she's still going for one more try.

Personally I had my tubes tied after 2, that's enough mini-mes for this world to handle.
