Just curious to hear thoughts.

Why is there not as large of a social conservative outcry against the killing of embryos used in fertility treatments, which far out number the quantity of abortions?

Is it that the majority don't believe in equal rights at the moment of fertilization and do believe there are other qualifiers involved when judging when it is moral to destroy an embryo?

I thought unused embryos were frozen for potential later use?

Although I suppose eventually the embryo becomes nonviable.

Because most social conservatives don't know anything about fertility treatment.
