Immediately you ought to be waiving a red flag here. To fertilize eggs with sperm outside the confines of the conjugal act is a grave sin. To do so outside of the physical intimacy of sex remains completely unnatural. To do so clearly violates the natural law. Children are not meant to be conceived in sterile labs by technicians in white lab coats. Moreover, children are not commodities to be bought and sold; they are gifts from God.[click to continue...]

Leaving the practice of religion up to each child to decide for themselves when they are a teenager or older punts this moral duty parents have. Yes, it is true each person will need to decide for themselves whether to make the practice of their faith genuine, rather than just a family tradition.
