where dozens of fertilized eggs are created and most are destroyed.

I don't believe this is true. I've recently seen an IVF documentary where out of 20 harvested eggs, only six succesfully made it to the stage where they can be implanted via catader. The mother to be chose to implant with three embreyos freezing the rest for future. They were trying for one, but had a 53 percent chance for twins. The use of embreyo 3 was to up the chances of a single succesful fertilization from 60ish something to like 87. IVF success ratios are still not up to pique efficiencies that they will become as technology developes.

It only counts as murder if you kill it, not if it dies on its own.
