Implanted with the Wrong Embryo

The news media is reporting of a story of a couple from Ohiowho had another couple’s embryo implanted in her uterus by mistake. Using the in vitro Fertilization technique (IVF), doctors somehow implanted the wrong embryo. Now the woman is pregnant with someone else’s baby. Though she could have aborted the baby, she decided to carry it to term—even though she won’t be able to keep it.

Denny Burke highlights the ethical difficulties associated with certain kinds of fertility treatments. What is amazing is her testimony about the nature of life and she has chosen to bring the child to term. It is worth it to read or watch her story.
