Just because parents chose not to immunise their offspring with the single MMR vaccine doesn't mean that they chose not to immunise at all ...

"it would mean a lot of people in various arms plants here in Europe having to go and find honest work"
What? You mean to say that the arms industry is dishonest?
I'd rather work in an arms plant than be, for example, a politician or a lawyer, or work for BT. At least my customers would know exactly where they stood with my products and services.
I wasn't suggesting that adoption of orphans should be the sole responsibility of the infertile. I know several people that took to fostering and then adopting even though they have their own biological offspring. They are indeed better people than most. But I still disagree with IVF. Perhaps if Neil Docherty's suggestion of making the parents pay for the treatment themselves would encourage more adoption and less IVF.
Lets pretend for a minute then that I didn't mention genetics and over-population:
What about the kids with no parents or family that would love parents but aren't going to get them because we are enabling otherwise childless people to have children?
That's my main issue with IVF.
The genetics argument is also valid as per horses, donkeys and mules.
I have no qualms about where it comes from.
I totally agree with the AC who commented on the parents that force a dietary lifestyle on their children when it is clearly bad for them. I know at least one kid whose mother is vegetarian by choice but he is not. They both used to eat meat, she changed her ways and has forced him to do the same.
