The Americans who ‘adopt’ other people’s embryos
When I found Jennifer and Aaron Wilson could not get pregnant,
they know exactly what they want to do.
The couple from North Carolina on the option to start in vitro fertilization (IVF), which mature eggs are fertilized with sperm in the laboratory.
Or they may have already tried to adopt a child in need of a home.
they are applied to the Christian fertility specialist clinic in Knoxville, Tennessee – National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) – which promised to help them “adopt” the fetus.
Doctors often create extra embryos when undergoing IVF couple,
in case you need multiple rounds of treatment. But this can leave behind a lot.
More than 600,000 are currently being held in frozen storage in the United States,
most of them waiting to be used by the couple that created them the next time you want to try to have a baby.
But there is no need for each of these embryos,
and it is estimated that one out of 10 available for donated embryo.
For many couples who have IVF, what happens to these frozen embryos no longer need to be is a question
that requires careful consideration – embryos must remain indefinitely in the cold preservation or disposal? If you think a couple of human life begins at conception, and this could be the ethical dilemma of urgency.
