    [color=darkblue:i1amw4si]The following moral dilemma was posted in another forum to corner pro-lifers and promote pro-choice. Let me get your thoughts.[/color:i1amw4si]

    [color=darkred:i1amw4si]Let’s say you have a fire at a fertility clinic. In one room, you have an infant in a crib. In the other room you have a cannister in the freezer containing 600 frozen embryos intended for in vitro fertilization. You only have time for one stop. Do you save the infant or do you save the 600 embryos? If you believe that human embryos are equivalent to 600 human lives, shouldn’t you choose to save the 600 embryos instead of the infant? If not, why not?[/color:i1amw4si]

    Save the infant. The frozen embryos have no chance unless implanted which the Church does not condone in-vitro anyway.
