Fertility groups have branded a Canadian radio station "tacky and distasteful" after it launched a competition to "win a baby".
Ottawa music station Hot 89.9 unveiled the contest on its breakfast show last month, offering three rounds of fertility treatment worth $35,000 (£21,700) to the contestant who convinced listeners and a panel of judges, including fertility specialists, they were most deserving of the prize. Those entering were asked to write 100 words on why they should win.
By race, ethnicity, African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV in the United States. At the end of 2007, blacks accounted for almost half (46%) of people living with a diagnosis of HIV infection in the 37 states and 5 U.S.-dependent areas with long-term, confidential, name-based HIV reporting.
A sophisticated new microscope makes it possible for fertility doctors to monitor the developing fertilised egg continuously for up to five days, also making it possible for parents to watch their developing baby in video from conception.
Children born with the help of sperm or egg donation or via surrogacy are well-adjusted at the age of ten, a study says.
Surrogate-born children demonstrated slightly higher levels of adjustment difficulties at seven years old, although they remained well within normal limits for that age.
The authors suggest that 'the absence of a gestational connection to the mother may be more problematic for children than the absence of a genetic link'.
Well, things have changed for us yet again.
Comunity decision: I am going to give birth.
-I am able to get up and walk around.
-DPs Borderline Peronality diagnosis(BP) may cause her to have to be hospitalized durring and for a time after PG
-Getting PG would mean that she couldn't take BP meds to help stabalize her.
-My family tends to get pg fairly easy. Her family tends to miscarry easily (I know they say it is not heriditary, however, her mom, g-ma, aunts, and g-g-ma all had over 5 miscarriages and @ least 2 stillbirths each.)

Our son Andrew is 3 years old and in Preschool. Today my Partner went to a parent conference, and what his teacher had to say could have killed me, and at the same time explained a lot. Andrew has always known to have two daddys, and when he says at school, with pride "I have two Dads" the kids act like he has a disease. My theory is that the kids go home and the parents ask little Johnnie or Mary what did you do today, and when the kids say Andrew has two dads, im assuming the parents get grossed out and tell the kids not to play with my son.
