Illinois Review: IVF: Deadly Business from Beginning to End:
IVF requires the killing of many more embryos than will ever get implanted, beginning with the 80% found to be non-viable for implantation. Of those deemed healthy enough, more will be threatened with death if too many have the brashness to survive, given that multiple embryos are almost always implanted in an attempt to assure that at least one will survive. This protocol reflects the poor success rate experienced with IVF, representing more dead embryos along the way. IVF is a deadly business from beginning to end.
