Madness and Silliness at NICE

http://www.nhs.uk/news/2012/05may/Pages/nice-ivf-older-women-same-sex-couples.aspx


Same-sex couples and women aged up to 42 may soon be eligible for IVF treatment, according to new draft guidelines published today.

NO ONE AT ALL SHOULD HAVE IVF.  


IVF IS ANTI-EUGENIC. 



Executive directors:

Sir Andrew Dillon, Chief Executive

Dr Gillian Leng CBE, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Health and Social Care

Ben Bennett, Business Planning and Resources Director

Professor Carole Longson, Health Technology Evaluation Centre Director


Half the Executive Directors of NICE are men and the other half women.   It seems that women are half responsible for the madness and silliness of mad and silly decisions.   

My Facebook friend Daryll Christopher thinks that health and education are stuffed with over-promoted female mediocrities and incompetents who seem to be beyond criticism.   

Is it now time to repeal the Equality Act before women do even more damage and make themselves even more unpopular, before, eventually, after the backlash, being sent back to the kitchen barefoot and pregnant?

IVF isn't necessarily dysgenic - it can be eugenic in certain cases

Itcan be used to weed out individual bad genes by creating several embryos from parents who are carriers, then testing for the ones withiout the bad genes and implanting them.

II'm all for improving the quality of the human genetic stock, but a blanket ban on IVF might not necessarily be the way to do it.

On the other hand, perhaps the genes which make people need IVF should be among those we seek to weed out.
