Peter Singer on IVF

Peter Singer argues that the morality of embryo wastage is no different to the use of contraception or celibacy – all of these involve eliminating a possibility of human life.  So the Catholic position expressed in is inconsistent.
In Singer’s op ed article in The Guardian, 14 January 2009, he reflects on the 30th anniversary of the first IVF procedure, or what was known as ‘test tube babies’ at the time. “Deeply controversial at first,” writes Singer, “IVF has fought back ethical and religious objections to become commonplace.”
