Newspaper defends IVF competition

<excerpt>A follow up to our previous report:

</smaller></bold></excerpt>"The Birmingham Post has said its
controversial IVF treatments competition was "never about getting more
readers", following the birth of twins to a winning couple."

The newspaper claims that it was hilighting the inequity of the
"lottery" of NHS infertility funding (depending on where people live)
- however critics claim that it was promoted as a 'win a baby'

One wonders if the newspaper would have reported unsuccessful cycles -
which are more likely to occur.
