PARIS, October 26, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Celine Dion, 37, told a French magazine that she plans to have her second child in 2007 after her three-year, $100-million contract with Caesar’s Palace Casino in Las Vegas ends. The child, the product of in-vitro fertilization, already exists and is on ice at a fertility clinic in New York City.

“I’m approaching 40 years old, and I have to tend to that,” she told Tele 7 Jours. Another child conceived at the same time was born in 2001. “This frozen embryo that is in New York is my child waiting to be brought to life.”

Although acknowledging that the embryo already conceived by IVF is indeed a child, Dion does not appear to have given recognition to or understood the humanity of the other children that were likely sacrificed during the procedure. IVF most often results inÂthe death of many conceived embryos before one successful pregnancy is maintained. IVF involves the creation of human embryos outside the womb and the implantation of several of these already created tiny humans in the womb of the mother.

Three new studies have shown that on average 42% of ova generated for IVF carry some genetic abnormalities that would prevent a child created from them being brought to term.
