Embryo Glue

I’m not a fan of in-vitro fertilization, mainly because tiny human embryos are treated like a product and killed by discarding them down the drain or aborting some of the babies when IVF results in multiples.  Emma and Paul Ryley turned to IVF when they couldn’t have a baby, but this time the doctor tried something new.  He glued the embryo to the woman’s womb and it resulted in Ethan being born.  They’ve actually developed embryo glue to increase the chance of a success.  This could be a positive tool in that they’ll only implant one embryo if the success ratio increases.  Or it could be used for couples who adopt frozen embryos now languishing in frozen storage.  My hope and prayer is this new glue will result in more lives saved instead of being killed.
