It won't stop IVF, just get a bank load of pay out of your own pocket
Exactly, and for the average Polish couple wanting children, it may well be out of their reach.
For those who are better off, it will probably put them in debt for years.
have they thought of the obvious option ''adoption'',
I'm sure childless couples aren't dim Kenny! But given the choice ( until funding stops ), of course couples would probably prefer to have a child that is genetically theirs. If there is no other option, some couples may indeed choose adoption, but shouldn't they have the right to have a child that is theirs genetically? Most other European countries have state funded IVF treatment.
surely it would be a win/win,
But adoption isn't what everyone wants. In theory it sounds like an ideal solution, but for some maybe the idea of bringing up a child that isn't genetically theirs isn't acceptable.
I could be wrong, but to me this is the sort of comment that someone who doesn't have children makes.
It also must be particularly hard for the 17, 000 currently undergoing treatment. If the cut off point is the middle of next year, then they must be under a lot of pressure to conceive before their time runs out.
