Can Christians go for IVF?

Q&A Snippet: “Should Christian couples use IVF to have children?”

Two main issues are mentioned in this brief response: 1) The problem of excess embryos in storage, and 2) Selective termination of pregnancy in IVF.

How would the understanding that “life begins at conception” impact our perspective of IVF?

Moreover, is the giving up of excess embryos for adoption morally praiseworthy from a Christian perspective?

Scripture warns, “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. (1 Tim 5:8).”
