In August and November, 30 embryos conceived through in vitro fertilization, but who died before they were able to be transferred to a uterus, were laid to rest in Resurrection Cemetery in Mendota Heights. The embryos came to the Catholic cemetery from two fertility clinics, and their burial was facilitated by Laura Elm, founder of Sacred Heart Guardians and Shelter. Another burial is scheduled for February.
