Fertility Clinics

Am I the only one who thinks it odd that people spend tens of thousands of dollars to bear children with the aid of a fertility clinic? It's not as though there's a shortage of human beings on this world.

Until there are no children born into poverty, it is unethical to bear your own children, not to mention wasting a small fortune on it. A person could artificially bear a child, or pull a hundred families out of poverty so extreme that we can't even understand it.

Of course, dog and cat breeding is even more insane than artificial human breeding. With the idea that "breeds" must be preserved, pet breeders spend a fortune and lots of labour to create inbred populations of animals that simply should not be. If an entire breed is unable to reproduce without mechanical assistance, something has gone wrong.
