WHILE no-one wants to deny loving couples the chance of a family, the birth of the latest quads raises some serious questions.

The North London couple had their babies after two rounds of IVF.

They are both on benefits and live in a bedsit with little space.

Their suitability for IVF at all is in question here, along with the simple matter of who will have to pay for the upkeep of these children. Most would-be parents planning a family work out beforehand whether they can afford children.

This couple plainly could not, but were helped to go ahead anyway.
