2. Where are the people who want
"what God intended" when it comes to this? They're always there against abortion and contraception/family planning! What does fertilization technology have to do with God?

(I'm not against it, I just think it's hypocritical of them).

3. if it gets mrs. unblock and me a child, it'll be a miracle
which is as good a proof of the existence of god as any.

5. If you believe that God created everything...
Why is it so hard for them to realize that God gave them this gift!? I mean, think about that joke with the guy on the roof stuck because of flood waters. HE prays for God to save him. So, someone comes by in a boat and someone in a helicopter, but he turns them away. Then he dies, and gets sent to heaven, and he asks God, "Why did you forsake me?"
"Forsake you?" God asked, confused. "I sent a boat and a helicopter. What else did you want me to do?"
I just don't understand their reasoning.They say that everything exists because GOD CREATED IT...but medical technology is evil. God, the hypocrisy pisses me off.

4. Cute title! Nice to see some wit!
No opinion on in-vitro. Do what you gotta do I guess.

7. I'd rather adopt, personally
I don't see spending thousands of dollars when there are plenty of children needing families available. I would never assume that my genes carry something so special that I'd have to perpetuate my line of the species. Nor do I really care for the whole pregnancy experience. I'm hemophobic and the thought of pregnancy makes me want to pass out.

8. According to a lot of "partial-birth abortion" opponents and "pro-life"
activists, wouldn't discarding the fertilized eggs be tantamount to murder?

One argument against Kerry recently seen was "Take a biology course, Kerry. Life begins at conception!"

On that concept, God is the world's most fervent abortionist.
