This contribution explores an area where religion in France has always played a very important role in the various debates on bioethical issues. Among various religious groups, the Catholic Church has been the most active and outspoken presence in these debates. This study explores their implication—via several activist groups—and the influence and impact they have in two specific areas: research on embryos and the issue of surrogacy.
