Ron Stoddart, director of Nightlight Christian Adoptions, a nonprofit that facilitates Christian adoption, David Cook
, a Wheaton College bioethics expert, and Ellen Painter Dollar
the author of a forthcoming book about Christian perspectives on
reproductive and genetic technology, weigh in on what should be done
with frozen embryos left over at fertility clinics.
When couples choose in-vitro fertilization to create
embryos to help build their families, the unused embryos are frozen for
future attempts at pregnancy. Most couples are unprepared for what to do
with remaining embryos once their family is complete. There are over
500,000 embryos currently frozen in storage at American clinics.
