Amazing results have been reported in research on embryos.

For example, a report just months ago confirmed a woman in East Tennessee had delivered the longest-frozen embryo to successfully be birthed – 24 years.

Emma Wren was born to Benjamin and Tina Gibson, weighing 6 pounds, 8 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. Prior to being transferred into Tina’s uterus at the National Embryo Donation Center in Knoxville, Emma was cryopreserved for more than 24 years. Emma was frozen Oct. 14, 1992, and thawed by NEDC Lab Director Carol Sommerfelt March 13, 2017. Tina became pregnant with Emma as the result of a frozen embryo transfer performed by the medical director of the clinic, Dr. Jeffrey Keenan, two days later. Tina, 26, spent her pregnancy carrying an embryo conceived just 18 months after her own birth.

Also, just weeks before that, a “chemical surgery” was done
