John James boots out IVF

By johnboy - 28 September 2006 25

The Canberra Times is reporting that with the Little Company of Mary taking over John James private hospital they’ve brought with them some old fashioned Catholic hellfire.

As a result godless IVF programs are getting booted out. Will the Government move to find space for them at Canberra Hospital?

What’s Your opinion?

Yep, and that would make the LCM the doctrinaire loons about whom I was speaking.

well there’s the minor matter of the LCM spokespeople saying they’re doing it on religious grounds.

Hm – I was attempting a bit of web-based research to find whether there’s an IVF clinic or something similar at Calvary, but I couldn’t find it.

Alas, though, VG has an annoying tendency to be right about stuff. So it’s quite possible that Calvary does continue to support IVF. Just because an organisation is “churchy” doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re anti-science loons who believe that things have been getting worse since we admitted we’re going round the sun and not vice versa. There are actually intelligent, wise, compassionate people who happen to have religion in their life.

Unfortunately for religion, though, the doctrinaire loons tend to get a lot more publicity…

vg, as far as I know, there’s no IVF facilities at Calvary ‘cos it’s run by the church police. And when they take over JJ, they’ll stop it there

Am I missing something

Typical narrow minded catholics.

I’ll wait until 6 weeks time to tell them what I think. Mrs VBMan has been booked into JJH for many months now for out child #3 – less than 6 weeks to go now 🙂

Talk me through the IVF facilities at Calvary then

Not right vg

They have the room at JJ, where procedures have previously been carried out and will be until 6 October when the Church Police stop it because they’re roaming carflics.

I have a Monty Python song stuck in my head now.

Like private schools, private hospitals can of course run with whatever ethics they like (within the law). But given they are the only service provider for this stuff in Canberra, surely the transition out of their hospital could have been handled with more grace?

that is part of the IVF process. isn’t it ?

What a bunch of wankers…

vg 11:32 am 28 Sep 06

Its nothing to do with religion, its purely financial. They don’t have the room, and one particular IVF business in Canberra dominates the market
