And what happens to the "surplus" 13 or 14 embryos at the end of it all.........
Also the embryo that they DID allow to live is going to become a child (If its not to be regarded as a child already) and is going to be USED to suit the needs of other people without the opportunity to give/refuse consent. Talk about exploitation !
The issue of letting embryos live or die according to their genetic composition also leads to the spectre of a revival of eugenics. (What the Nazi's were all about)
There is the even crazier story of the parents who are fighting (under the new UK "Human rights" legislation) for the "right" to choose the sex of their next baby (using similar techniques) because their only daughter was killed in an accident and they already have four sons so they "need" another daughter to "replace" the one which died.
