A lot has been written about whether the health-care reform bill should limit a woman's right to safely and legally terminate her pregnancy. I have not noticed similar rancorous comments about the absence of limitations on the federal funding of infertility treatments for men and women whose only medical ailment is that they cannot conceive.
With the U.S. population at more than 307 million and climbing and more than 626,000 children in foster care or available for adoption, I do not want my tax dollars funding infertility treatments.
I did not and will not lobby my representatives to reject the desperately needed health-care reform bill unless it clearly states that it will not pay for these services. I would appreciate the same consideration from the anti-choice voters.
