The slippery slope that began with legal abortion has continued to range downward and to broaden— with infanticide, physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and in vitro fertilization (IVF) on the increase. We do not often include IVF in our discussions of anti-life agendas, yet a consistent prolife stance is founded on the truth that human life begins at conception. The practice of IVF routinely involves embryo destruction as well as cryogenic "preservation."

Is a frozen embryo, of which there are upwards of 600,000 in the USA alone, alive or dead? Obviously, this rumination could lead to even more bogus definitions of when life begins and ends. What financial resources are needed to maintain IVF embryos? The expense of "adopting" one is around $8,000, for the home evaluation and frozen embryo transfer.

Our KRLA website Video of the Month notes moral objections to IVF that are not religious-based. We have also posted a Resolution written and passed by the KRLA board in 1984, objecting to a Kentucky statute that facilitated it. Our objections threw some sand on the slippery slope, yet IVF has become less visible as a prolife concern.

Staying abreast of the many challenges to life is practically and emotionally hard to do. But what is the alternative?
