"War Over Fetal Rights" in Newsweek

There's an article on

www.msnbc.com/news/NW-front_Front.asp (if this link doesn't work, then you can go to www.msn.com and search for "newsweek")

The part of the article that made me think about my own views on PC/PL was embryo adoption. They mention a couple who went through IVF and had these embryos that they didn't "use."

I don't know that I would feel comfortable about giving them (if they were mine) for adoption because I would be thinking that I couldn't ensure that this child of mine would have a good home and family. In addition, I don't know that I would feel comfortable destroying these embryos either. My conflict is that I consider myself PC.
