IVG has already produced successful outcomes, and fine tuning is being aggressively pursued. Just as in IVF, scores of created embryos are destroyed in the process. Once trialed and perfected, it will make In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) obsolete, cause devastating waves in society by destroying the concept of parenthood, and create a plethora of legal complications. Overall, IVG devalues human life. Read more at these two links:
