1. You are correct about the huge inconsistencies in the position
of those opposed to research but accepting of many methods of treating IF. The Catholic Church, however, DOES have a problem with IVF, if I remember correctly.

That said, the scariest stuff I heard listening today was from those opposed, who seemed to treat every embryo as a life, and the woman's role in bringing that embryo to life as inconsequential. I truly wondered how many steps we are from forced incubation to "save" the "lives" of all the embryos sitting in cold storage right now.
