We have been blessed with good coverage for infertility. What it means, quite simply, is this: we have been able to put my health, and the welfare of our future children, at the forefront of our decision-making process.

I want to write more, but I'm hard pressed trying to figure out what else there is to say. It's been pointed out, over and over, that covering a major, life-changing medical condition which affects 12.5% of the population through no fault of their own, when doing so promotes the health and wellbeing of mothers and children, protects third parties from exploitation, and is cheaper than not covering that medical condition, is the only sensible thing to do, and all those points remain. But I wanted to talk about how it feels to be a patient with proper coverage. It feels great. It's a relief to be allowed to act responsibly.

There's nothing lucky about needing IVF, but if you do need it it's nice if it doesn't cause financial strain or worse.

If we ever get that progressive here in the USA, it will be too late for me, but there are plenty of IF sisters younger than me who could use a break . . .

Do you suppose the % of males in government plays a part? Hmmmm . . .

All great points -- esp. the protection from exploitation.
