Why Scientific Details Are Important When Novel Technologies Encounter Law, Politics, and Ethics

Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics 38 (2):204-211 (2010)
This paper focuses on the issue of what to do if a couple who generates embryos chooses to lawfully, and in their (and my) view, ethnically discard those embryos. Specifically, is it appropriate to use the cells that come from “excess” embryos in medical research instead of discarding them when a couple has ceased trying to have any additional children?
