Sign this petition for access to healthcare and ivf for women 👯♀️
I think we are the select few who really understand how the stopping <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a> cycles during covid is removing healthcare access for women. If you don’t want to sign the petition or don’t agree with it, keep it trekking and move on to another post. We don’t need your negativity and will ignore you and not explain our humanity to you.
Google the change.org petition for <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">ivf</a> during covid to sign it. Since they don’t allow us to post links here. Below is an excerpt of how discriminatory this is:
“...the principles of justice, respect for patient autonomy, and nonmaleficence were severely neglected.
Before we discuss the violations of those principles, we need to address some terms that are commonly used while describing <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">fertility treatment</a>. First, we take aim with those who refer to <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">fertility treatment</a> as elective. If a person with Type 1 diabetes needs insulin because his or her pancreas is not functioning properly, people would term that as necessary treatment. Yet, a woman that that needs medication because her ovaries are not functioning properly is told that this is “elective” treatment. Why? Because an ovary is a female organ? Because people don’t value reproductive rights? <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">Fertility treatment</a> should no longer be termed “elective”. <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">Fertility treatment</a> is both necessary and time sensitive.
The principle of justice dictates that we should treat others equitably and distribute burdens fairly. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, no guidelines or organizations have asked fertile patients to avoid pregnancy or use contraception. Our infertility patients are now asking us: “Why are WE the only ones being asked to make a sacrifice to avoid pregnancy?”. And this is does not just affect infertility patients. What about same sex couples and single mothers by choice? Are they being treated equitably? Our patients’ desires to conceive should be respected and they should have the same opportunities to conceive that any other person would have in the United States (or even the world). They feel discriminated against and it is our duty to remedy this for them. Infertility is already an isolating diagnosis.”
