Assisted Reproductive Technology has High Failure Rate

Bradley Mattes   |   June 13, 2013

Assisted reproductive technology is big business—about four-billion dollars a year. A desperate, childless couple can easily spend tens of thousands of dollars using things like in-vitro fertilization. But does it work? Apparently not, according to the twenty-ten issue of the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report. They analyzed the nation’s fertility clinics, and their findings will surprise you. Of the attempts to use assisted technology to result in a live birth, it failed sixty-eight-percent of the time. That’s an enormous price tag for a more than two-thirds failure rate. I wonder if fertility clinics inform anxious couples of this bleak reality. You can’t put a price on children, but perhaps couples should consider adoption as a more viable alternative. They can give a loving home to a child who needs one.
