MedLine Citation:
PMID:  3332826     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This paper presents an overview of ethical issues concerning IVF. The first section evaluates specific ethical issues; the medical understanding of IVF, the development of the procedure, the risks of the procedure, and issues related to consent. The second part of the paper reviews broader issues: the allocation of resources, who receives the benefits, implications of IVF, and feminist issues. This review of ethical issues presents a framework to understand and evaluate the value dimensions raised by this technology.
