I agree with Brandy as well. Remember, even though government funding may run out, private funding could still fund this type of research and probably will when the benefits become apparent.
Couples seeking infertility treatment decide all the time (and have done so for years) whether to destroy, donate to other couples, or donate to research "extra" embryos from IVF procedures. What would you rather do-destroy an embryo or use it to save a life? Embryos are not people. They are not fetuses. They are clusters of cells. When I worked in IVF I would estimate that 98% of couples chose to donate the remaining embryos to research. It's a good thing, in my opinion.
