    I have to have criminal checks for my employment so having them again for IVF wasn't an issue for me. I get that most people don't have to have them because they are able to conceive naturally but I don't see anything wrong with asking for IVF. At the moment it just isn't possible to check everyone who conceives naturally but it is possible to check those who can't. It would be awesome if it was possible to check everyone but I think that it's always a good idea wherever possible.

    I have said what I think about this but will no longer be engaging in the discussion as I will probably just be upset by reading the discussion here.

    I don't agree with police checks at all. People who can conceive naturally don't have to do a police check so why should anyone else. To me it just seemed like another cost added and more time wasted in an already long process

    I don't have any issue with it. It's not possible to screen everyone who conceives naturally but I don't think that means they shouldn't screen those they can. It might also be to cover the companies butts?

    It is a legislative requirement in Victoria. There is no requirement for a criminal history check in other states.

    For those that are comfortable with screening for IVF/IUI, why do you think this is worthwhile? Do you think people with criminal histories are unsuitable to have kids?

    I would be seeking legal advice if I lived in vic and taking it for discrimination. If they can't do it for all then it shouldn't be for a selected group in society. I would be taking this to court.

    What do they do with the police check? What kind of offence would cut you off IVF services?

    I agree it's discrimination however I could understand the rational for child related crimes.

    I conceived naturally, but I wouldn't have minded doing a police check if it was required, so I am not really against it.

    Hmmm it's a tricky one. Imagine if a IVF clinic provided IVF for couple of whom one was a convicted paedophile, that person became a parent, and then they went on to abuse the child - could the IVF clinic not get in trouble for assisting a convicted paedophile to become a parent and have unlimited access to a child?

    I know that anyone can have a baby traditionally without a police check, so it does seem unfair - but the reality is, with assisted fertility, you are now involving a third party in the process of conception - whereas traditional conception only involves the mother and father, and their own decisions in creating a child together. Surely it stands to reason that the third party involved in conception has a responsibility to ensure they are behaving in an ethical manner? If a mother wants to create a child with a convicted paedophile, then it is only HER morals that are involved in making that decision (and the paedophile themselves). But if a IVF clinic becomes involved, they have a moral responsibility to the child, to the parents, and to society as a whole.
