The American Infertility Association believes that working with the media to educate the public about infertility issues is important. While we do not have control over the final "product," we do the best we can to ensure that the pieces are accurate and balanced. Sometimes mistakes and misstatements occur through no fault of our own. However, we will continue to work hard to get these stories out -- largely because spotlighting infertility issues can help all of us reach our goals. Only an educated, infertility-aware public is going to understand the need for an insurance mandate to cover infertility. Only a public that understands the struggles of the infertile will support such a bill. Occasionally, we lose something and this should be responded to within the context of an ongoing dialogue with the media. What we can't afford as a group of people sharing many similar goals is to use this and other message boards to attack others. We cannot afford to expend all our energy flaming others when there is so much work to be done. Carolyn Berger, AIA Chair and Ellen Bender, AIA Board Member
