Catholics and IVF

Sorry for the short notice. Tomorrow (Monday), The American Fertility Association is hosting a “webinar” on Catholics and IVF.

From The American Fertility Association website:
“Catholics and IVF: A Pastoral Approach
Are you a Roman Catholic or married to one and considering IVF or other forms of ART for your family? Does the Roman Catholic Church’s position raise concerns regarding your decision?

This webinar will help prepare Catholics who are considering IVF / ART or have a child born as a result of IVF / ART to have a productive and respectful conversation with their pastors from the perspective of their lived experiences. The guest speaker will be a pastoral representative”.

It is scheduled for 1pm, Eastern standard time. For more information, click here.

  1. I have to wonder about the word 'prepare': "will help prepare Catholics who are considering IVF". A Catholic schoolteacher was fired a couple of years ago when the church found out she conceived her son via IVF.

    I thought the Catholic church's stance was pretty much "absolutely not, under all circumstances".

    Yet another reason I'm lapsed.
