A San Francisco couple put a twist on the baby-making process by hosting a $35 a head party to raise funds for assisted reproduction.

Although Brian and Molly Walsh have saved $10,000, they need an additional $15,000 to cover the costs of IVF and PGD (Brian has Marfan syndrome, a condition they do not want to pass on.) Coupled with an online auction, they hope to raise enough money to cover the procedures.

What do you make of this?. Is this a creative way to solve a particularly expensive dilemma? Or is this what many online commentators are calling selfish?
