(Reuters) - A controversial IVF lottery will launch in Britain this month giving prospective parents the chance to win thousands of pounds toward expensive fertility treatments in top clinics.
The scheme, which the media have dubbed "win a baby," has already run into trouble on ethical grounds with critics calling it inappropriate and demeaning to human reproduction.
Britain's Gambling Commission has granted a license to fertility charity, To Hatch, to run the game from July 30.
Every month, winners can scoop 25,000 pounds' ($40,175) worth of tailor-made treatments at one of the UK's top five fertility clinics for the price of a 20 pound ticket bought online. The tickets may eventually be sold in newsagents.
The lottery is open to single, gay and elderly players as well as heterosexual couples struggling to start a family. FULL STORY
I left a comment there (subject to moderator approval)-
With hundreds of thousands of kidnapped kids available from CPS, why expend all the trouble and money on these schemes?
Don't leave it up to governments to pay for the Redistribution of Children from those who can give birth to those who can't or won't.
Childless? Step up and do your "Raised by the Village" and "Best Interest of the Child" duty and adopt a government kidnapped child today!
