Baalthazaq- true, I oversimplified a bit. I had thought of that and forgot to mention it while typing. So they're OK with multiples if people can not afford singlular embryo implants, so long as none are aborted and the people who opted for the more affordable process now deal with the chances of getting the expenses of additional children. Seems like a pretty big catch 22 there, since even with the 8-12 implant method, it`s only about a 30% success rate.
