What do you think are the legal and ethical issues surrounding the use of IVF? How can these issues be resolved? What should be done with the extra gametes that are removed from the woman’s body but never implanted in her uterus?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The legal and ethical issues that surround the use of IVF.

Introduction: The in vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the most successful methods of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that has resulted in the birth of millions of children worldwide. This process involves collection of eggs which are then placed in a petridish and the sperms are added to the dish to facilitate the process of fertilization. The newly formed zygote is placed in an incubator for embryonic development and is finally implanted into the uterus of female partner for development.

Explanation of Solution

The legal and ethical issues surrounding the use of IVF are as follows:

  • • The process of IVF involves implanting one or more embryos in the uterus which results in multiple births. These births generate health costs of $1 billion because the twins and higher multiples are at a threefold higher risk of premature births...
