NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE FORGETS TOCLEAR THEIR CHOICE WITH VATICAN

The Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life has criticised the awarding of this year's Nobel Prize for Medicine to IVF pioneer Robert Edwards.

"I find the choice of Robert Edwards completely out of order," said Bishop Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, head of the body which speaks for the Vatican on medical ethics issues.
