Just in a few days, there starts a unique in its kind IVF lottery in the UK, in which all women interested have a chance to purchase a lottery ticket worth £ 20 and get a chance to win … a child.
The campaign operates within a charity move to support the couples who have difficulty with procreation and forced to turn to a fairly expensive in vitro fertilization procedure (IVF).
The lucky one to win the jackpot is due a 25000 £ award, which she can spend on an individual course of infertility treatment in one of the best clinics in the country. As the initiators of this idea note, the basis for its development were the statistics, according to which almost three-quarters of public health-care agencies no longer provide this service free. The opponents of the lottery, on the contrary, believe it to be humiliating.
As part of a prize, they provide not only a free IVF with the accommodation in an expensive hotel and transportation to the clinic with a personal driver, but also the provision of donor sperm or ovule. Not only traditional infertile couples may take part in the lottery, but also homosexuals and lesbians. At first, it is planned to raffle off the top prize once a month, but later, if the event is a success, the organizers want to shorten this period to two weeks.
