An Ottawa music station, Hot 89.9, recently launched a “Win a Baby” contest. The prize offered was up to three rounds of fertility treatment worth $35,000. It’s reported that the station received about 400 applications “from a diverse range of people, including same-sex couples, single women and cancer patients.”
