As many of you know, I started a thread about abortion. Someone brought up the question of "Who would you save: an embryo in petri dish or a person" in a burning building? This made me think about IVF and I felt it was best to start a new topic about IVF because I feel that IVF is a different topic from IVF. I have done some study and I don't feel that IVF is right. But I don't want to condemn anyone here who may had IVF done or had relatives who had IVF done. I know that infertility is very painful when you want to have a baby so badly. I am still learning things about IVF. The reasons I have reservations about IVF is: 1.) They freeze a number of embryos and they are often never used. 2.) Many Embryos are killed in the process of IVF. I have a problem with that because I believe that embryos are humans. 3.) I feel that it is playing God. 4.) Many homosexual couples use IVF. I cannot support homosexual couples birthing a child. I personally think couples who are infertile and want children badly should look into contacting pregnancy crisis centers to let them know they want to adopt a newborn baby. There may be some pregnant women who are seriously considering abortion because they don't want their babies at all. There are so many pregnant women who would be willing to continue with their pregnancies if they knew that their medical bills would be paid in full by a couple who wants to adopt their baby. IVF is very costly. Think about how many unborn babies could be saved by the same amount of money or even less.
