ALBANY, NY, Apr 30 (LSN) – On Wednesday, the Task Force on Life and the Law, a New York-based panel of 24 “experts” in medicine, law, and ethics, recommended selective abortions for multiple pregnancies.  In such cases, which commonly result from in vitro fertilization procedures, the panel advised “fetus reduction,” in order to improve the chances of survival of the other children conceived.  Despite its offensive conclusion, the panel did expose a dangerous trend within the field of IVF.  They warned that information given to IVF candidates is “seriously deficient,” and they urged state legislators to require that clients be given complete information on the risks and complications of the procedure.
