3. there is little logic coming from the Wh on this--so tortoring yourself is
what happens when you try to figure out the logic.

..By my tortured calculations, 1,073 embryos have been destroyed in the process of making 118 babies. If one resolutely believes that life begins right at conception, ***how*** are these numbers justified? Again, if one believes that life starts at the moment of conception, isn't it possible that all those lost embryos could have remained frozen until thawing and implantation success rates have improved through the, ahem, advancement of medical research?
