LONDON, England, August 30, 2002 ( – A survey by Britain’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has found a great variation in the “success” rates of the country’s IVF clinics. Those with high rates of success in implanting artificially fertilized embryos that are carried to term in a woman’s womb are being described as “better than nature in producing babies.”  However, “better than nature” is an ironic overstatement, given that most of the G-7 societies most likely to “improve upon” nature using technology (the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Japan and Italy) – have populations in decline, while developing countries with the highest birth rates seem to find nature quite dependable for “producing babies.”  To read The Times coverage see:,,2-398726,00.html   For LifeSite coverage of Canada’s low birth rate see:  75% OF CANADIANS WORRIED ABOUT FINANCING PENSIONS DUE TO LOW BIRTH RATE
