LOL @ Susan Collins holding the torch for reproductive freedom while the rest of the GOP runs a train on her!

Susan Collins should be locked in a room with a drunk Brett Kavanaugh and a keg of beer every night when she goes home.

At least she's consistent. Her additional reasoning for opposing surrogacy is strange, but creating human embryos with intention of killing them is definitely unethical.

#3, it will end the same way every time. They'll both just walk out when Lindsey Graham and Amy Klobuchar break into the room to steal the keg.

Who does that?

It's a part of how IVF is currently done. They often deliberately create more embryos than they intend to let live.

"They often deliberately create more embryos than they intend to let live."

That's economics for ya.
Why would you go through the process of harvesting eggs and only harvest one egg, when it might not work out?

No it's not. There's no brain development or nervous system or pain felt. You want to explain ethics then how about you explain to us the ethical argument for child separation and imprisonment that is being carried out right now across our southern border?

It's about as unethical as creating chickens with the intention of killing them.

I had no idea that Larry Flynt was still alive.

Your phrasing is more than a bit off and inflammatory.

They create a higher number because there's no way of know how many it will take to achieve successful implantation.

There are numerous donation services for the remainder.

For example www.embryodonation.org

Or they can be donated for research.

"Than they intend to let love" makes it sound like IVF doctors and parents are cats playing with a couple of mice.

Then it's not an ethical procedure.

It's always nice to hear a Swastika Rehabilitator expound on ethics.

Really helps put things in perspective.
