I do think there is a valid distinction between embryo banking, which is what the Abraham Center was doing, right?, and doing a split, freeze-all cycle w/DE+DS. Abraham Center required all its sperm donors to have doctorates; there was a definitely eugenic slant to the whole operation. Abraham Center claimed they closed down b/c it was losing too much money, I think, although it sounds as though the FDA harassed it out of business.
You know, I struggle with the question every day of whether I "bought" my children -- I had to use DE+DS -- and I'm just hard-pressed to say what I did is that different from what California Conceptions does. They don't create the embryos until the recipient couples are lined up and in agreement, right? I know that anything that approaches a moral line is disturbing for those defending access to reproductive technology, b/c it creates a target for the religious right, but if California Conceptions operates the way I understand (which I've only heard from word-of-mouth, so I could be wrong), then I think it's risky from a forensic standpoint to condemn them, too.
