Good Eggs

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.

In an effort to remain consistent with its strict dictum that human life begins at the moment of conception, a segment of the Catholic Church is now suggesting doing WHAT with the thousands of unused “surplus” embryos created by the in-vitro fertilization process?

A) Praying for them so their souls do not end up in Limbo.
B) Storing them at the Vatican to ensure that they are not used for stem cell research.
C) Burying them in accordance to Catholic cannon, complete with a full Mass, funeral procession and grave-side service.
D) Adoption by women who will have the embryos implanted in their wombs where they will, God willing, survive and make it to birth.

D) Adopting them. Just a thought, but perhaps the Church could instead start by adopting the thousands of all ready born children who are orphans and in dire need.
