...the technology could transform parenting into nothing more than a "planning exercise".
Bishop Anthony Fisher, a health ethics spokesman for the Catholic church, said: "Any technological development that is a project that we control rather than a gift we receive is a concern."
Hmm... we shouldn't make any decisions or try to plan anything, especially using technology. If we perfect the art of not thinking, God may reward us with a brain.</cynic>
Asked whether the discarding of human embryos, which is involved in the technique, raised ethical questions, Sandra Dill, executive director of the support and education group ACCESS Infertility Network, said: "It does, but it's an ethical question for the couple involved.
"We argue that the people who create the embryos are the ones who value life and value children. Regardless of whether they are infertile of not, their wishes should be respected, because they are the ones who value the embryos the most."
I like that. :) I'm pretty big on letting parents do what they want, though. Even in some extreme cases. I don't think we're anywhere near consensus on how to raise a child (as if such a thing exists).
