Israel is a country of controversies: with high-quality medical care available to all and a high antenatal detection rate of congenital anomalies followed by abortion, the incidence of infants born with malformations has been reduced dramatically in the last decade. On the other hand, religious and strong traditional ethnic attitudes on fertility have led to a world record rate of ARTs and multiple births, which have increased the incidence of VLBW infants and the long-term handicap that follows their survival.
