RE subspecialty.. personal moral dilemma

I am very interested in RE as a fellowship, but I am concerned that some of my personal beliefs won't be compatible with the field. For example I would not be supportive of selective abortion (in the case of unwanted multiples) or discarding of unused embryos.

Is it possible to practice as an RE without compromising on those issues?

My guess would be NO. Ob/gyn in general.....maybe? But not reproductive endocrinology where this type of thing is absolutely central to the entire purpose of the subspecialty.
