In the early 1990’s, the Department of Veterans Affairs was prohibited from providing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment for veterans whose service injuries left them needing IVF to have children. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association have been working to change this law, but so far have not been successful in securing the necessary votes. It is hard to believe that Congress would not want to do as much as possible for wounded veterans, especially those who can’t have a family because they received injuries causing their disability that were a direct result of their wartime tour of duty. IED’s and shrapnel injuries to the groin have been major factors, as well as spinal cord injuries.
North Shore Fertility Wants To Help Our Wounded Veterans
At North Shore Fertility, we want to help these wounded warriors who need assisted reproductive technologies like IVF and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) to build their families. We are offering them both a free consultation and a 30% discount off an IVF cycle. We also are going one step further and offering these discounts to all of our veterans, regardless if they were wounded in service to our country. Know a vet who could benefit? Please let us know. We don’t want of the brave men and women who have served their country to let financial hardship stand in the way of getting pregnant and having a baby.
