Hudgens’ plan, which was co-sponsored by several other senators, would limit the number of embryos a doctor could implant to two for women under 40 years old and three for women 40 or older.
Obviously, some people are against this, some doctors claiming it would ‘shut them down’:
At least some fertility doctors say the limits in Hudgens’ bill would hurt chances for women to get pregnant. They say that while three embryos are usually enough, there are special cases when they need more.
“What this bill will effectively do is shut us down,” said Dr. Daniel Shapiro, a fertility doctor in Atlanta.
In regards to the Suleman case more than the proposed bill, I have nothing against single mothers or big families and I would never tell anyone what they should do, but I tend to think there absolutely should be a limit to the number of embryos to be implanted. That’s just my opinion.
Most of us can barely take care of or afford one or two kids, let alone eight at one time.
