Sure, they might donate to your political campaign, or they might pledge some money toward the charity of your choice in exchange for you running a marathon. But you'd never ask them to help pay for your rainbow-themed birthday party. Well, times have changed, as they have a way of doing, and these days we've take to asking people to give us money to fund our artistic endeavors, our fledgling businesses, and just about everything else. So, why not our IVF treatments? Oh, hmm, I bet you can think of a few good reasons if you really put your mind to it.
