Official statistics show that almost half of embryos used to help women conceive through in vitro fertilization (IVF) were thrown away during or after the process .
Since August 1991 more than 3.5 million human embryos have been created, producing only 235,480 gestational sacs or evidence of successful implantation. Of the embryos created, almost 840,000 were put into storage for future use and more than 2000 were stored for donation. Almost 5,900 were set aside for scientific research.
Almost 1.4 million embryos were implanted in the hope of beginning pregnancies, with fewer than one in six resulting in a pregnancy.
Nearly 1.7 million were discarded unused and a further 23,480 were discarded after being taken out of storage .
Lord [David] Alton [of Liverpool] said last night that embryos were being created and thrown away in industrial numbers.
He added: It happens on a day-by-day basis with casual indifference. This sheer destruction of human embryos most people would not know that it took place on such a scale.

Hitler and Mengela would’ve been truly impressed. Aren’t we proud as to what the “free” world has come to?
Is there nothing that disgusts these pro-abortionists and the Death Culture anymore?
That's over 230,000 pregnancies that otherwise wouldn't have occurred.
Abortion caused the death of what would have been a child.
Gain: 233,000 children and 466,000 happy parents
Loss: 1.4 million eggss that would have otherwise just been flushed out during the women's period.
I don't understand the opposition
“... what would have been a child.” Um, perhaps you could tell this old fart when the embryo would become a child? Were these salughtered embryos ‘human embryos’?
These were embryos that were destroyed, eggs which were fertilized by sperm. So this is, in effect, one abortion per embryo created in the lab that wasn't successfully implanted. They were not just eggs that would have been flushed out during the period. There is a huge difference between a fertilized egg and an unfertilized one.

IVF is another tentacle of the abortion industry. It's a death industry. Plenty of people on FR have supported IVF. Please, supporters of IVF - read this. Millions killed, all thanks to IVF. How many killed in the US?
The destroyed embryos were not unfertilized eggs. They were babies that were killed. Tiny, tiny babies.
When does an unborn baby become worthy enough not to be killed?
