How artificial reproduction contributes to the abortion crisis–PODCAST Season 4, Episode 29

At first glance, artificial reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization or surrogacy might seem to be the exact opposite of abortion. Abortion kills children of women or couples who don’t want a baby. IVF provides infertile couples with an opportunity to have a child. That’s a good thing, right?

Have a blessed and safe Independence Day!

States across America are passing pro-life laws…and out-of-touch corporate executives are losing their minds.
