    Test tube baby pioneer wins Nobel Prize in Medicine
    "STOCKHOLM  Robert Edwards of Britain won the 2010 Nobel Prize in medicine on Monday for developing in-vitro fertilization, a breakthrough that has helped millions of infertile couples worldwide have children.

    Edwards, an 85-year-old professor emeritus at the University of Cambridge, started working on IVF as early as the 1950s. He developed the technique, in which egg cells are fertilized outside the body and then implanted in the womb, together with gynecologist surgeon Patrick Steptoe, who died in 1988."

    He has made it easier for couples to conceive but what about all the unwanted children in the world?They need homes.
