    Nevermind this country, this entire planet is over. WTF is wrong with people? These animals are in jail for killing other people, or for violating society, and we have a dating service for them? [​IMG] Even better, the taxpayers then have to fund their pregnancy, and later, their lives. [​IMG] This planet is so toast.

    Oh, and who's fault is it that you might be too old to have a baby with a murderer, who you knowingly married while he was serving a 15 year sentence? WTF is that crap? How about not murdering someone next time, so that you can have kids at a younger age, or better yet, how about NOT MARRYING SOMEONE WHO YOU MET WHILE HE WAS SERVING A 15 YEAR SENTENCE FOR MURDER! [​IMG] The appologism, and absolute stupidity, of people on this planet is tragic.

    Convicts 'should be allowed IVF treatment while in jail'

    Prisoners should be allowed conjugal visits and IVF treatment to help them have children while behind bars, a new report claims.

    Academics claim that helping prisoners to become parents during their sentences will assist their rehabilitation, as well as respecting their human rights - and those of their partners - to raise a family.


    Last month senior judges in Strasbourg ruled that Kirk Dickson, 35 - serving 15 years for kicking a man to death in a row over a packet of cigarettes - should be allowed to donate sperm for IVF treatment on his wife Lorraine, 49, whom he met through a prison penpal network in 1999 and married while she was serving time for benefits fraud.

    The couple argued she would be too old to have his baby by the time he is released, next year at the earliest.

    They spent years - and more than £20,000 of taxpayers money - fighting through the British courts and initially lost at the European Court of Human Rights, but a month ago the court's Grand Chamber finally ruled in their favour.

    So they are going to pay for IVF for a women convicted of benefits fraud? Classic.
