Abstract:   (581 Views)


In the process of I.V.F and other similar methods, fertilized eggs are destroyed in various ways, while there is a possibility of their survival and of their transformation into humans such as us. The basic question is that whether this action is justifiable from the point of view of "bio medicine ethics", which is one of the subcategories of applied ethics?

Methods and Materials:

This study has been compiled using library studies and scientific articles in this field.


There are two perspectives on this question: one that considers the embryo at this stage as having moral validity; therefore, the elimination of additional embryos in normal conditions is contrary to the accepted moral principles, and the other is the point of view opposite to it. The writers believe that the former is right and they have expressed various reasons for proving their claims. Furthermore, they assessed and criticized the reasons for the opposing view. Consequently, in order to get rid of this moral challenge of embryo, a number of suggestions have been proposed to prevent this discussion from being considered an obstacle to research and modern methods of treatment for infertility.

Keywords: Moral Dignity, Embryo, Human Dignity
