This week, the Georgia state House of Representatives voted 96-66 to adopt a bill allowing for people to legally adopt as parents embryos that can be implanted in in vitro fertilization procedures. The legislation is defended by Clarke Forsythe, senior counsel of Americans United for Life, as responsive to “the need to humanize the embryonic human at a time when at the federal level embryonic stem cell research is being promoted.”
There has been an effort to recognize embryos as separate living beings as part of a pro-life agenda. Colorado recently moved to declare fertilized eggs as people.
It is not clear what one gets for a newly adoptive couple of a frozen embryo. Travel coolers and hot ice are possible options.
