Maybe some will agree, maybe some won't, but I can see a very worrying trend going from the nuns looking after the products of "inconvenient" pregnancies, to the health insurance companies advertising cover for the 1 in 6 couples who are unlucky enough to find themseves in need of the treatments offered by the infertility clinics. While I am glad that these issues are now worthy of our airtime, I find it incredibly distasteful that the insurance companies are going down the route of the religious in basically saying "we'll look after it for you". VHI are even running ads for it. The location of the new NMH should be without the over-riding influence of what the religious agree as acceptable treatment, OR what the insurance czars are willing to cover. The targetting of the emotionally vulnerable in order to make a profit has always been the realm of bullies.
