Assisted reproduction – ethical aspects 2013:1

On 28 February 2013, the Swedish National Council on Medical Ethics presented a report on assisted reproduction.

In the report the Council examines ethical questions that are raised by new and old technologies within the field of assisted reproduction. Topics that are explored are, among others, surrogate motherhood, embryo donation, social egg freezing and age limits for fertility treatments. The ethical analyses are supplemented by the Council´s recommendations on several matters. One of the main conclusions is that it is time to allow new treatment possibilities in Sweden. A summary of the report is available in English.
