We are created in the image of God (who is love) (Gen. 1:27) and are a product of Godís love expressed through our parents union of love (Eph 5:25).  Artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization and cloning procedures therefore, dehumanize human reproduction, by taking the act of unitive love (Gen. 2:24) out of it and converting it into a purely cellular process. Furthermore, during in-vitro fertilization and cloning procedures, lethal violence is committed against many human beings, who (as embryos) are destroyed; thus breaking Godís commandment (Exodus 20:13). Some of these procedures also deprive the resultant human beings the dignity of knowing their origin (biological parents), causing them grave injustice and psychological trauma. 

 Unitive love, which is conjugal union in marriage, is inseparable from procreation, because, conjugal unionís physiological purpose is procreation. These procedures, therefore, dehumanizes unitive love. This causes division, divorce and turmoil.  During therapeutic cloning, human beings are cloned, then killed in their embryonic stage and then their cells are harvested for medical use. This procedure, therefore, is one-step up in its evil intend compared to the other type of cloning.

  Biologically, our humanity is determined by our genetic make up and not by our stage of development.  Furthermore, an embryo is a stage in human development; just as infant, toddler, youth and adult are. Therefore, to justify killing of frozen embryos, which are doomed to die from being discarded, is similar to killing prisoners in the concentration camp for research, because they are doomed to die.
