In the latest issue of the journal Fertility and Sterility, the president of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Richard J. Paulson, MD, puts a call to action out to his fellow scientists, saying that they have a special obligation to correct “unscientific conclusions attributed to science” — especially when these conclusions have to do with when life begins.

She’s performing on Ellen everyday this week (entertaining guests like Justin Bieber) while also promoting her 13th studio album Rebel Heart, which has already reached top billing on the Billboard 200. So we understand why she may be a little late to chime into the whole Dolce & Gabbana kerfuffle involving their stance on “non-traditional” (read: gay) families and children that were conceived via IVF. Their comments, published in Italy’s Panorama magazine, insinuated that IVF produces “children of chemistry, synthetic children.
