IVF or in vitro fertilization is an artificial method of conceiving a biological child. Advancements in this field have been a continued ray of hope for all childless couples in the world. Bringing their dreams closer to reality is one man, internationally renowned for his incredible work in the area of IVF. He is Dr. Christopher Chen, the founder of Advanced Centre for Reproductive Medicine (ACRM), Singapore. It has been decades of hard work that has made the man who he is today. However, some online media sites are casting doubts on his career and his fame. That is sad because Dr. Chen finds himself amidst a series of mud-slinging posts in the recent past.
Singaporeans are well aware of Dr. Chen’s contributions. They are aware that he has set records in the treatment of infertility. About thirty-eight years back, in 1983, Dr. Chen helped in the delivery of a triplet. The newborns were not like any other normal newborn babies. They were conceived by IVF. Three years later, in 1986, he did what no one else had ever done before – he successfully froze human eggs. This discovery and invention was a miracle for all those women who had issues getting pregnant in their current medical state. Dr. Chen’s endeavor gave them a ray of hope and still today it is one of the most talked-about researches of his. It is a moment of pride that he has done so much towards human procreation. However, people who have no idea about his achievements and contributions are now questioning his actions and deeds.
