The discussions about the withdrawl of concent about IVF treatment in the news lately has been very enlightening to me as to how it works and I don't think I like it.

In principle I'm not against treatments to help people have children. However, keeping sperm and eggs frozen is one thing, keeping fertilised embryos is another.

Once that embryo has been created it's a life, what right have we to bung it in a freezer and decide whether it gets to carry on with that life or not?

But an embryos only a *chance* of life. It won't necessarily even implant, even if it does may have genetic abnormalities and naturally miscarry.

(I think egg freezing is actually quite tricky and has only recently become practical, I'm not even sure how available it is, which I believe is why she's in this unfortunate situation)

Yes, but what right have we to take that chance away?
