Babies are increasingly treated like goods.

Babies are increasingly treated like goods. A recent example is the announcement that babies have been born from 12-year-old embryos, the Jerusalem Post reported Feb. 3. Doctors from Hadassah-University Hospital in Ein Kerem were behind the birth of the two babies, now 9 months old. Previously, the longest human embryos have been frozen and then defrosted to produce a baby was seven years. The parents underwent in vitro fertilization treatment 14 years ago, resulting in 12 embryos. Of these, four were implanted in the woman’s uterus. The rest were frozen. The woman became pregnant and gave birth to twin girls.
