Kyle thought for a couple of seconds, and then sighed.
"This is heavy stuff. I don't think it's wrong, though, no. It's a very fair perspective. I think what needs to be remembered here is that you both come from very different worlds. For you, you grew up in an atmosphere known for blood, death, and decay - and your method of quelling that darkness is through science and education. It's a noble cause, and many don't realise it. But, for Ana?"
He took a breath, clearly trying to find the words.
"Now, I'm not saying your opinion is wrong - it definitely isn't. I'm also not saying this is the absolute reasoning for her thoughts. But she comes from an entirely different world. Her father is a aristocratic wizengamot for the Russian Ministry of Magic; he volunteers to study case law and sit in or cases. She was pushed into a very formal job of accountancy, which is clearly something she doesn't want to do. Her entire life has been based around order and organisation and following the law. And perhaps that passes further to the law of nature too; perhaps she believes she can only truly be a mother if she carries a child of her own. She doesn't like to deviate from what she has been raised to think..."
"And...well...has she ever actually seen what good your education has done? She has had people injured and even die around her. It's almost as though she has lost faith in the entire system, let alone an illegal method of conducting it. The official medical professionals couldn't even help her with her mother, or her brother, or Nikolai's alcoholism...and I hate to break it to you but...even Marlowe considered himself something of a medicinal genius. He would do multiple experiments on bodies...not so much for the same reasons but...you know, the idea is likely tainted."
He ran his hand through his hair, shaking his head.
"I know what good your practices do; heck, you saved us all from a pandemic. You would be hailed a hero in the muggle world, you know. You're doing incredible work but, sadly, she's never seen it. And it's hard to see it when you've been blinded from failed experiences in the past. But...perhaps this will change her mind? Maybe being able to have a baby, even if it's just for the emotional need with trigger the blinders to crack open. You might not be saving a life, but you are enabling her to bring one into the world - something she has desired for a long time. The experience of pregnancy itself might be enough; it might just ground her enough to see what good you are doing in this field, even if not certified to do so."
