Preimplantation genetic diagnosis: an ambiguous legal status for an ambiguous medical and social practice
Journal International de Bioéthique = International Journal of Bioethics 2008 September; 19(3): 87-104
The controversy about to which extend PGD may be applies is particularly interesting because it stresses on a paradoxical point concerning PGD. Although this technique is strictly regulated in most European countries where it is regularly practised, the legal status of PGD may appear to some as unethical because it may be viewed as a facilitator for those who would like to select children for reason other than medical. The need to test human embryos before birth and the consequences that may occur to those detected with some abnormalities also revives the issue of the respect due to the human embryo.
