One Last IVF Post

Okay, there is one last aspect to this story, and it might be the worst:
One course of IVF and $6,300 later, Ms. Ilha and her husband have filed a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, alleging that the provincial policy is discriminatory, and should be changed.
Human Rights Tribunals are a sham, and they certainly have no place setting public policy. We hold elections and choose people to make these decisions. We have courts that were created to adjudicate any disputes, even those between an individual and the government. There is no reason to bring an HRT into this; they are bullies and they are unaccountable.

Though it might not be fair, the very fact that they have chosen this route makes me all the less sympathetic to their cause.
