Well we are set to start our first IVF cycle in about 2.5 weeks. We have just been given the forms to sign our consent for embryo freezing following our fresh cycle, something which we want to do so that we can have them available for any future cycles we may need or decide to do. Part of this form is to decide what we wish to have done with any unused embryos left over in the end. As many of you probably know, we have the following choices: to donate our embryos for science/training purposes, donating them to other couples who cannot conceive, or discarding them.
I'm feeling quite conflicted about what is ethically the right option, especially considering my husband's and my view that life begins at conception. We both share our Christian faith so this is a factor also. I am just wondering what all of your views on these options are? What have you decided to do with your IVF cycles?
I'm just gathering opinions and perspectives at the moment more than asking for advice. Im hoping through hearing what others have thought about, it may make things clearer for me.
Thanks in advance!
