Suleman Octuplets - Background - Conception

Conception

Suleman's octuplets were conceived by in-vitro fertilization (IVF), conducted by Dr. Michael Kamrava. Suleman claimed to have requested implantation of six embryos that she had accumulated from previous IVF treatments, despite being informed that the recommended guideline limit for a woman her age was three. She wanted to have all six implanted so that the embryos would not go to waste. In a subsequent investigation, Dr. Kamrava acknowledged he had actually implanted 12 embryos. The mother's health and gestational status were followed from her first trimester.

Famous quotes containing the word conception:

    The philosopher’s conception of things will, above all, be truer than other men’s, and his philosophy will subordinate all the circumstances of life. To live like a philosopher is to live, not foolishly, like other men, but wisely and according to universal laws.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    If the Nazis have really been guilty of the unspeakable crimes circumstantially imputed to them, then—let us make no mistake—pacifism is faced with a situation with which it cannot cope. The conventional pacifist conception of a reasonable or generous peace is irrelevant to this reality.
    John Middleton Murry (1889–1957)
