Cause UK has pitched and secured national media coverage for a month long #IVF40 campaign for the Genesis Research Trust and it’s Chairman Professor Lord Robert Winston.
The campaign #IVF40 highlights concerns about the increasing commercialisation of IVF and it’s psychological impact.
Professor Lord Winston, Chairman of Genesis Research Trust, says the anniversary of the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown, should mark a ‘moment for most serious reflection’ warning of failures around regulating the high cost of experimental treatments.
“The fortieth anniversary of the birth of Louise Brown, the world’s first IVF baby, is a time to celebrate the great happiness of millions of couples. But this achievement of Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards, and many other pioneers, is also a moment for most serious reflection.” Professor Lord Winston
For this campaign we have secured media coverage throughout the month of July. Highlights include the Press Association, Yorkshire Post, inews,The Times and Daily Mail, as well as broadcast media, including ITV This Morning and BBC Radio Four.
