A Change of Heart About In Vitro Fertilization

"One of the basic purposes of marriage is blurred with IVF. Children as gifts from God have become desires and pawns in the life process. IVF breaks the very tenet of the principle of double effect. The nature of the act is not good. The good effect is a wanted child. However, that desire does not outweigh the negative nature of the act. One need look no further than the way in which embryos are treated to see this."

Dr. Anthony Caruso in an interview with Mercator's Michael Cook, speaking of why he decided to get out of the IVF business.
