Fr. Henry Furman -

Children are the crowning gift of marriage, but many couples suffer from infertility. This talk looks at the "reproductive technology" industry that has emerged to provide a solution. Is it licit to manufacture human life? Does anyone have a right to a child? Do these techniques and therapies truly promote the good and flourishing of the man and woman? What about the innocent human life produced? Is conception in glass (in vitro) in keeping with human dignity? What about the destruction of embryos? or their freezing? Does the technique assist the marriage act or replace it?
