Over the last week or so we have been witnessing the sparring between Bill O’Reilly and Jennifer Aniston. While the remark Aniston made was purely in context of promoting her movie ‘The Switch’, Bill took offense as he felt that message can be very destructive when wrongly construed by the teenage and young girls in the country. To which Aniston responded, speaking to People magazine;
“Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth. “And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”
(Oh man! LoL)
While we do not want to get into the sparring part, looks like the American Women are favoring Aniston, atleast through a survey that was conducted by by Barbados Fertility Centre and Ipsos Reid. Barbados Fertility Centre. Both these centers are destination for a growing number of American women and couples who want to undergo fertility treatment for half the cost of what they would pay in the US without compromising success rates. This particular survey of American women aged 25-45 that gauged attitudes toward In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) found that 83% of these women support a single woman using IVF to conceive if she is emotionally and financially able to care for the child.
“We have seen a sharp increase in patients and inquiries from all backgrounds in the United States, including heterosexual and gay single women and couples, so we wanted to better understand how American women view IVF,” said Dr. Juliet Skinner, Medical Director of Barbados Fertility Centre, located inBarbados, in theSouthern Caribbean.
Key Survey Findings
- Over one quarter of American women aged 25-45 (28%) who are planning to have a child are concerned about their ability to conceive.
- Most surveyed (57%) were unwilling to travel outside of the US for any kind of medical procedure. However, fully 74% of women aged 25-45 who would consider IVF would be willing to travel outside of the US for the procedure if there was a significantly lower cost and higher pregnancy success rate.
- 57% of women who plan to have a child, or are currently unsure, are likely to consider IVF.
