Why aren't pro-life women lining up to adopt the half million frozen embryos from ivf clinics?

Here's your chance to save the life of an unborn child!

Why don't all the pro-life women adopt more of the children in foster care?

Well they should. They are still children in need. Too bad they don't count.

Even President Bush doesn't care about born children. He just vetoed an insurance bill for poor children.

I think pro-life people should be allowed to have children at all. They should be forced to adopt.

Nah, I don't really feel that way. That would be removing someone's reproductive rights and I couldn't do that. Pro-life wants to do it, though.

I don't think people are obligated to adopt animals if they are animal rights advocates. I don't think you should be gay in order to be a equal rights advocate. I don't think you have to be mentally ill to be an advocate for MI causes. I don't think you're obligated to adopt a child if you are prolife.

Exactly. And you don't have to abort to be pro-choice.

You DO however seem to have to stick your nose in everyone's uterus' if you're pro-life. If they just left women alone I'd call them fantastic but they don't.

That would be the compassionate thing to do, for the millions of babies, children, and adults who are suffering from unspeakably horrid diseases. Which is why pl'ers are against it. They want born people to suffer.

It isn,t as easy to adopt/foster and embryo as it is a child before you do that embryo any good there are a lot of medical checks to get through as for pl not caring about born children i myself and a few pl i personaly know do infact foster.
How many pc on here actually foster it is a humanity thing not a pro life thing.

I still don't see why the born children aren't getting adopted first. I mean would that not be the more sensible thing to do? I also think the agencies shouldn't be so reluctant to put kids with certain people (as in no more of this "You're too fat to adopt! Don't let the door hit your fat a** on the way out!" crap).

To hell with freakin' embryos. That's like saying people should all go out and buy up gorcery store eggs and sit on them to save those embryos and make more chickens so we can all have more protein. But I am surprised as well that the anti-choicers aren't rushing to adopt embryos. After all, the embryos are the only lives they actually care about. Or do they not want to 'adopt' embryos because those embryos will become their problems after nine months, as opposed to being some other 'stupid prostitute's' problem?

Cambion,

do you believe pro-lifers when they say they value the fertilized egg and the embryo as much as they value born children?

I don't. I think they value the late term fetus as much as a newborn, but they can't admit that a late term fetus is a far cry from an egg that was just fertilized.

futureshock imo the value as a newborn begins at succesful implatation. If the fertilized egg doesn't get succesfully implanted you are not pregnant. You only are pregnant after implantation succeced and it begins to grow. Stretching it even more I would tell you that my definite limit is at the first beat of the heart. Once you have a heart beating well it's like my heart beating, who am I to stop it..

I don't mind the beating-heart time gauge, or the "quickening" gauge.
