Nobel Laureate and IVF pioneer Robert Edwards has died

from IVF pioneer Robert Edwards dead at 87

When Edwards was awarded a Nobel prize in 2010 for his work on IVF, the Roman Catholic Church denounced the Nobel award, arguing that human life should only begin through intercourse and not artificially. The Vatican said Edwards "bore a moral responsibility for all subsequent developments in assisted reproduction technology and for all abuses made possible by IVF.

In 2011, Edwards was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II "for services to human reproductive biology."
