I'm curious as to what people think about this. Specifically, should government get involved here?

No, I haven't come to a conclusion myself, still turning things over in my mind.

Well possession is 9/10ths of the law.
If a couple stops paying storage the embryos should then become the property of the facility, just like any storage facility.

OK. Now the clinic owns a bunch of embryos. What should they do with them?

The issue doesn't go away because ownership changes. They are still there, and the clinic is still paying to store them.

Good lord, people need to agonize far more over children already born. They may become gang members or even mass shooters or a burden on society by getting on welfare. That's just for starters. Child trafficking should be a much bigger worry. Society needs to show much more respect toward the living before it should begin to worry more about the unborn.

An embryo is only the beginnings of a physical vessel for our souls. Does an embryo have brain waves akin to what a healthy human being has? No.

Just like a fully formed human being who becomes brain dead with no brain activity and has the plug pulled on them, an embryo is not a human life.

Unwanted embryos should be destroyed.

Why not just throw them out?

The article I cited explained why clinics don't currently do this.

But if the law was clear that parental/ownership rights are extinguished if an embryo has been abandoned after X number of years, and the clinic is free to do what they wish with them, including throwing them out, I'd have no problem.

I have a hard time imagining the enactment of such a law, given the current political climate though.
