We know what’s special about the blessed Mary. She conceived Jesus while maintaining her virginity. It seemed impossible and thus, miraculous. But women nowadays can do the same – skipping sexual intercourse and still have a baby growing in their belly.
People who had problems conceiving will resort to the In vitro fertilisation (which costs $12,400 per cycle). This process will extract the egg cell from the mother and sperms from the father. Specialists will then fertilize it in the laboratory and inject it to a woman’s uterus. There’s no sex involved.
Women have never worked more than they are working now. They occupy 46.9% of America’s workforce. The balance is expected to shift more towards the ladies since 68% more women earn a bachelor’s degree than men. With their focus on their careers, they have less time for family.
Their problem is their body clock. Fertility declines at early 30’s and the risk of miscarriage is at 20%. More complications arise as they pass the age 35, with increased pregnancy risks and after birth problems such as a 1 in 350 chance of the child having Down syndrome.
They counter their body’s declining facility by extracting healthy egg in their prime age of 20s. They’ll freeze it and store it in a bank for use in the future. Women can do what they want to do without fear of their expiration.
