This poem which recently won the Pushcart Prize, really spoke to me and I thought I would share it.

Side note: I always bristle when I see the word "implantation" used to describe embryo transfer. Lord knows that if every transfer resulted in implantation many of us would be saved a lot of heartache.

Curious. I wonder if the author of that poem ever had IVF? If so, she probably would not use the word implantation in reference to the IVF procedure.

But I noticed that Gulliana and Bill Rancic used the word to describe the embryo transfer with their GC in a recent episode of their reality show. I was surprised by it.

I have to correct him.

Good poem, though.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why people think it's acceptable to mock the Catholic Church's stance on IVF.

Don't like it? GO TO ANOTHER CHURCH. Or start your own.

This "poetress" needs to take the time to read the Humanae Vitae to understand the philosophy. And if she disagrees with it, fine. But to mock it (to the applause and accolades of others) is grotesque. And make no mistake, this isn't analysis or criticism, it's nasty, snide mockery.

The Church seeks to elevate the beauty of the conjugal relationship and to make fun of it with sneering "poetry" only illustrates the ignorance of the writer and those who gave her an award for this drivel.
