Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, commented: "What is largely overlooked is that many millions more embryonic children have been killed following IVF, a quality-controlled process which is also intrinsically abusive of human beings.
"If the countless millions of pounds given to IVF had been given to the much-more successful ethical alternatives, many more children would have been born."
