After posting that story yesterday I added a comment to the Daily Mail site, which looking at today hasn't gone down too well!
There are other comments on there too like - well if they can afford to pay for private IVF, then they can afford to pay for the hospital treatment too! How naive is that. I'm pretty sure these comments come from people who have a choice and can have kids whenever they choose. My choice was taken away from me when I lost my fallopian tubes.
People say it's a lifestyle choice - but so is driving a car, but when they crash it into a tree and need an ambulance and surgery - you can bet that they want that for free!
I pay my taxes like a good citizen, I'm rarely sick and have never used the NHS for anything other than my ectopic pregnancies - so why do some people think that I'm not as entitled to medical care as they are?
Smoking is a lifestyle choice, but people get patches free, eating too much food is too - but you can get a gastric band now - and some are even getting sex changes!
The NHS is there to help people - whatever their medical needs, so why are fertility patients treated like this?
Seeing as I've paid for all of my own treatment, maybe I should ask for some of the tax money back that goes into the NHS, and as I don't have children in schools maybe I can have that back as well? See how they like that...
