Masir Al-Ajinnah Fi Al-BunukBasalamah, 'Abd Allah (2016-01-08)This paper was submitted to the symposium held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 18-21 April 1987 on some medical practices from an Islamic ethical perspective. The paper discusses the ethical aspects of benefiting from the surplus of embryos remaining after an in vitro fertilization (IVF) process. The author concludes that embryos, from an Islamic perspective, enjoy dignity and thus should neither be destroyed nor used for scientific research. In the first instance, physicians should not produce any extra embryos in the IVF process.
