  • no. I think IVF is perfectly ok. Not all scientific progress is against God's will. i think if its not in God's will for you to have a baby then IVF or not, you won't have a baby.

  • IVF is not a guaranteed method at all. The doctor does one bit, then the rest is still up to God. A lot of times IVF fails.

  • Well, I'm sure god would support IFV. Since he created the universe & all, that includes the science of IVF. So, I'd say yeah. Cassy has a good point too. The Dr. Does his part & the rest is up to "god". Same goes for couples to do it the old fashioned way. They do their part & the rest is still up to god.

  • No. Isn't that like saying its against God's will to do life-affirming/advancing medical procedure? ?

  • If your 'god' can be defeated by a test tube... then nowhere near all powerful.

  • No, I believe God gave us this knowledge, so we should use it!

  • God said , "Be fruitful and multiply." I have never seen any thing in the scriptures where
    he ever specified that there is only one acceptable way to obey that particular command.

  • I have some deep concerns about it because it is almost guaranteed that at least some of the babies will die because not all of the fertilized eggs will implant. I'm also concerned about the fertilized eggs that are created but not used. Ultimately, each individual that does this has to justify their decision with God. I just think there are other alternatives that carry less risk for the babies.

    This KINDA happens in nature as well... women have miscarriages, there are tubal pregnancies.

    OK... so the eggs may have implanted, but for some reason they ended up being somehow non-viable and the body rejects them or they implant improperly.

    Either way, those particular babies created via the "natural" process, still end up dying just the same as IVF babies.
