Consistency in the Church

Colour me impressed – the Catholic Church actually has somewhat consistent rules about IVF, namely, forbidding it as violation of Church doctrine. While I personally don’t agree with the idea of IVF being bad (although I have issues when it’s done on people who claim they can’t selectively reduce the number of embryo’s implanted if more than three are), I do appreciate the Catholic Church being consistent in the application of their doctrine.

What I find interesting is that so many people in the United States who had herds of children thanks to IVF claimed Catholic beliefs as the reason they couldn’t selectively reduce. “Woops.”
