Fat women no longer get fertility treatment in U.K.

Appearantly, the British Fertility Society no longer think that Fat women qualify to be mothers.

The British Fertility Society is recommending women with a body mass index of 36 and over should not be allowed access to fertility treatment.

Underweight women and those classed just as obese (BMI over 29) should be forced to address their weight before starting treatment, the society said.

NHS guidelines say overweight women should be warned of the health risks, but do not impose any ban on treatment.

Ok, I’ll take my tongue out of my cheek now. There are obviously serious health risks for underweight and severly obese women who are pregnant. It’s not like they are saying that they can’t get pregnant(yet). Seem very big brothery, but at the same time, many people who try to get Gastric Bypass surgury are actually recommended to lose some weight before undergoing the surgury. Talk about irony eh?

Personally, if the women are willing to pay for the fertility treatments and are ok with the health risks, why try and stop them? It’s their body right? *tongue back in cheek* And it’s not a human until it’s born, so no worries there right? /tongue back out.
