Infertility can be a difficult and painful issue for many couples, and there aren’t always easy answers. While in-vitro fertilization has led to a great number of successful pregnancies, selective fetal reduction is often required in IVF, necessitating the abortion of multiple children to lower the risk of pregnancy complications, an obvious ethical problem for life-affirming people. Recently, NaProTechnology has been gaining popularity and has seen successful treatment of infertility, by seeking to address the actual problem causing the infertility without requiring fetal reduction or causing a loss of life in any way. Encourage this couple to look into this treatment.  Doctors who would be willing to work with them can be found here.
