Britain's Baby Lottery Begins This Month

As of July 30, Britons will have the chance to win a baby through a scheme by the in vitro fertilization charity To Hatch, after the group was awarded a license from the country's Gambling Commission to sell £20 lottery tickets with fertility treatments, donor eggs or a surrogate birth as a prize, according to the Telegraph.

That's actually a pretty nice idea. And anyone can enter to win the once a month lottery — the olds, the gays, the singles, just about anyone! But of course not everyone is on board with the plan, and some say winning a baby through a lottery ticket purchased at a newsstand is unethical or something. After the announcement that To Hatch won the license, Josephine Quintavalle from Comment on Reproductive Ethics poo-pooed all over everyone's fun, saying, "This demeans the whole nature of human reproduction."

Whatever. Good luck everyone!
