Fertility ads delivered fact, not fear

Ms Charissa Yong highlighted how advertisements featuring cartoon sperm and slogans such as "Women are born with a finite number of eggs", urging people to conceive earlier while they are more fertile, were criticised for fear-mongering ("A shift to support young parents by the Government - and singles, too?"; April 3).

I applaud I Love Children, the voluntary organisation that took out the ads, for its creativity and cute way of delivering the message.

The message delivered facts, not myth. It is educational in nature.

Of course, it is up to the individual to digest these facts, and decide if she would stick to her "career first and baby last" plan, and take the risk of not being able to conceive at a later stage.
