Donating Embryos for Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Research: A Committee Opinion

Ethics Committee of American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Fertil Steril. .

Abstract

hESC research is an ethically acceptable use of human embryos that are in excess of those needed to meet the fertility goals of patients. The ethical basis for this view and issues to be considered during the informed consent process for the donation of embryos are developed in this document. This report replaces the Committee's 2009 report, "Donating spare embryos for stem cell research" (Fertil Steril 2009;91:667-70).
