Profoundness: on 8-celled embryos

As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short commenting on the reversal of the ban on funding for stem-cell research -- but nevertheless, a few questions to the people who oppose stem-cell research because it destroys embryos:

Do you also oppose the fertility treatments that create the embryos? Are you offering to implant those embryos, carry them to term, birth them, and adopt the resulting babies? How many embryos and blastocysts are in cryopreservation right now in the U.S.? What are you proposing to do about them?
