Test Tube Baby

Louise Joy Brown, age 35, is now pregnant with her second child.
I know what you are thinking.  Or at least I can narrow it down to a few possibilities:
  • Who the hell is Louise Joy Brown?
  • Why do I care that she's pregnant?
  • Again?
  • What's so special about her?
That last question I can answer.  35 years ago, Louise Joy Brown was the first "test tube" baby.
She was conceived via artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization. IVF is the process in which an egg is removed from a woman's ovaries, harvested and fertilized with a male's sperm in a laboratory, then implanted in the woman's uterus where it develops to term. 
All this is done without the male ever having to even see, much less touch, the female body.

In a totally unrelated story, Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe gave testimony yesterday describing the pop star's desire for children and how she broke the news to him that she was pregnant.
"Although Rowe described many personal details about her relationship, she did not address how the children were conceived."

Theories anyone?
