Yes: People who have been properly counseled, and who enter into ivf voluntarily and with knowledge, generally describe the experience as positive. The procedure is quite succesful in large numbers of cases, also a positive outcome. Risks are limited, and significant complications are uncommon, if not rare.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Do you think that in vitro fertilization is a positive option for single parents to have?

Options are good!: Modern technology has helped society deal with previously insurmountable problems such as infertility with remarkable success. I shall not burden this response with my personal opinions on family values; I do think, however, that existing ivf technology should be available to all eligible families. Appropriate counseling is warranted, but single parents should not be automatically excluded.
