This story was actually published on New Year’s day I think, but it only caught my eye when I was sorting the papers for recycling.
A woman who was born with only one ovary and had the other ovary removed when she was 12 has given birth to what doctors are calling a miracle baby.
Okay, fair enough, if she somehow managed to produce an egg without any ovaries then probably that baby has the right to be called Jesus, or Owen Meany perhaps.
And surely the doctors should know? After all they have undergone extensive medical training and they should be able to identify something that defies all possible logical explanations shouldn’t they?
Well the doctors do know that she actually partook of IVF treatment using a donor egg.
That’s not a bloody miracle it’s just quite commonplace medical procedure.
