What is Your Grace’s opinion on: IVF treatment, Surrogacy, Contraception, Embryo Research and Homosexuality!

The IVF treatment is acceptable as long as the eggs and the sperms are from a married couple, husband and wife and does not involve destroying fertilized ova. Consequently surrogacy is not acceptable since a third party is involved and will be the carrier of the fertilized egg. Family planning is very beneficial. It can be done just by following the biological cycles without the use of contraceptives that might possibly destroy fertilized ova. You can read about Embryo research and homosexuality in the Questions and answers section pertaining to 'stem cell research' and 'homosexuality'.
