We live in the future.
I recently visited IVF1.com, a site representing the in vitro fertilization (IVF) and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) center in Chicago and Naperville, Illinois. It is run by the Randy S. Morris M.D. He is a fertility specialist who lends his knowledge and expertise to couples dealing with the issue of infertility.
I have known about in vitro for a while now, and hearing it come up in conversation isn’t really surprising. But visiting IVF1.com, I suddenly felt confronted with a sci-fi dream come true. I really enjoy seeing predicted scientific achievements move from fiction to fact. Reading from the site’s home page, it’s almost mind-blowing. “Frozen Embryo Transfer — Did you now that extra embryos from an IVF cycle can be frozen for your own future use? Learn more!”
It’s just amazing. The things we can accomplish with our vast knowledge stores of technology and medicine. The limits to what is possible keep being pushed back further and further by our scientific pioneers. And Randy Morris M.D. is one of them.If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
