A new lottery is starting in the UK this month where potential parents can spend £20 ($32) to buy a ticket to win thousands of pounds of IVF fertility treatments at the best clinics in the UK, according to Reuters.
Reuters reports that if standard IVF fails, reproductive surgery, donor eggs, sperm or a surrogate birth will be made available.
Critics are speaking out about the scheme however, calling it “demeaning.”
A spokeswoman for the group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, told the Sun that: “This demeans the whole nature of human reproduction. Creation of human life should not be reduced to a public lottery.”
The scheme launches on July 30, and a winner will be chosen every month.
