What to Do With Leftover Embryos in Fertility Clinics

November 17th, 2022 by admin No comments »

This is a question that is often in the news…and right now, will probably be brought up in some political debate. I personally am FOR stem cell research and I don’t believe that a frozen embryo is a “baby”, or even a “fetus” or for that matter a “person”. (Which is a question that some states are putting on their ballots in November; is an embryo a person and if so shouldn’t it have rights?) What I do believe is that embryos are ‘maybe babies’, made with the hope and love of the IP’s, the expertise of the Reproductive Endocrinologist and Embryologist, the professionalism of the clinical staff and the care of the cryobank…. But they are only a thought and a prayer until they are implanted inside a uterus where they actually have a chance to grow and become a “person”!

Here is an excerpt of an article I read recently on this very subject:

“Because infertility patients are the gatekeepers of these leftover embryos, it is important to understand their opinions, according to Dr. Tarun Jain, University of Illinois at Chicago assistant professor of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, clinical IVF director, and lead author of the study.

When asked if using leftover embryos for stem cell research should be allowed, 73 percent of the 636 respondents who stated a definitive opinion answered yes.

“Infertility patients, in general, are altruistic, and it makes sense that they would try to advance medicine and help others,” said Jain.

African Americans and Hispanics were less likely to approve of using leftover embryos for stem cell research, compared with Caucasians. Patients younger than 30, Protestant, less wealthy and single were also less likely to support using leftover embryos for stem cell research.”

I am not surprised at these statistcs….are you?

Large Clinics and Their Satellites Working in Small Town USA

Doctors, insurances companies, and of course politicians say they have the answer to everyone’s healthcare woes. The simplistic bottom line is that the disadvantaged people of the United States need to receive healthcare. How this is made possible is important but not as important as the need. Where can someone go to receive quality care? In the small towns throughout the country you would think the answer would lie in the local clinic and hospital. Yet, most small towns no longer have a hospital, and the clinics in the small towns are operated by a larger clinic which uses the small town clinic as a satellite clinic. Therefore, proper care for people falls onto to the shoulders of the large medical organizations who operate the small satellite clinics of small town America.

We see the large medical organizations well represented in the Midwest. For example, Mayo Clinic is the dominant medical force of Minnesota, especially in the southern part of the state. You will not find a Coal City Illinois hospital because the town is not big enough to support a hospital, but the people of this town south of Chicago are still receiving good care from a larger clinic in the area.

People from the rural areas outside of Chicago have the opportunity to receive outstanding heart bypass surgery. This is because they can be initially treated in the comfort of a local clinic and then referred to world class heart surgeons closer to the city. This allows the patient to receive personal care while be in some of the finest hands in the nation.

Major surgery is one area where all people deserve the professional and personal touch a large clinic with small satellite clinics can offer. Home healthcare is another. With the shortage of healthcare professionals home health care in Illinois can be difficult to secure. But, this does not have to be the case if a patient wisely chooses the care of the medical organization with a base clinic and satellite clinics. The size of the organization will help the patient secure the personal home healthcare he or she needs.
