Thought they knew it all

Really?

Yep... nature has evolved a system of human reproduction over millions of years that weeds out birth defects... then certain persons come along trying to meddle with the process in a gigantic experiment that failed because they couldn't handle natural selection.

but as it turned out got it wrong

A 3.5% chance of defects using IVF vs. 2.5% for "regular" births hardly indicates to me that they "got it wrong" ...

The 1% difference makes it unacceptable. We shouldn't be paying for birth defects when the money could be put to better use - such as improving health care for vulnerable infants and children for example suffering from distressing conditions.
