Yet another problem with religion – it reinforces stupidity and technophobia:
My husband and I are finally pregnant. It’s been a long and physically and emotionally taxing road, but it’s well worth it, and we are so relieved and SO thrilled.
The only damper is that my parents weren’t in contact much through this whole process, mustered surprisingly little joy when they heard the news, and have finally revealed that it’s because they don’t believe in infertility treatments. They don’t believe it’s “God’s will,” and they would have preferred if we had adopted a naturally born child.
The problem with this logic is obvious to any thinking person: If fertility treatments are not “God’s will”, then neither is any other medical treatment. If “God” were going to heal someone, he would do it himself, so all medical technology goes against “God’s Will”.
