So, let me get this straight. Abortion is a sin because it is murder, according to certain interpretations of the Bible, right? So, what about in vitro? When you take out what . . .50 to 100 eggs and only fertilize a few of them, what happens to the rest of the eggs? Trash can? Have you just killed possible future children? What about choosing certain sperm to fertilize? Isn't that unnatural? What if God had a different code he wanted that egg to have? Have you ruined it?
So, I am pro-choice and pro-fertilizing help, but, I got to thinking, and I was wondering if the church is against in vitro. Is it? Why or why not? Following church logic, it should be, right?

There are many people who wouldn't use In Vitro for the reasons you described. If you hold the belief that life begins at conception, than all the fertilized eggs are the beginning of life. Many people either don't use in Vitro, or only fertilize as many eggs as they can have inseminated in one cycle. I don't know if it's a sin or not, but I would see all the fertilized eggs as holding the early stages of human life so it would be hard for me to freeze and potentially not use these eggs.
