Not necessarily a pleasant weekend morning topic, but one we ignore at our peril. As Mohler notes in the end of his post, what we do about stored embryos is only one end of the continuum that may decide what society does about you and me.
For most Americans, the moral status of the human embryo is a question that seems quite remote. Even as hundreds of thousands of "excess" human embryos are now stored in American fertility clinics and laboratories, to most Americans these frozen embryos are out of sight and out of mind. Thus, one of the most important moral challenges of our day remains largely off the screen of our national discourse. The issue cannot remain out of sight or out of mind for long.
