    I got this from the July issue of Wired Magazine and thought it was, well, sad. Compare the cost of in vitro fertilization treatment in the following countries:

    Russia ——————— $1500
    Thailand ——————- $2125
    Brazil, Greece, India — $2500
    Israel ———————– $2560
    South Africa ————- $3500
    Canada ——————– $4800
    Australia —————— $7000
    United States ———– $12000

    I know some of the difference in cost is the quality of medical care. But that much?
