When a couple divorces, who owns the embryo?

CNN: “According to a New Jersey state appeals court opinion handed down Thursday, the biological mother maintains a constitutional right to decide what happens to embryos extracted during an in vitro procedure. The case, which draws on some of the most emotionally charged aspects of life and conception, revolves around a couple who conceived one child via in vitro fertilization and stored the remaining seven embryos at a facility that promised to destroy the embryos if there was a divorce.”
