In Vitro Fertilization: BMA Reports on Ethics
Nature. 1983 May 19; 303(5914): 190.
A summary is provided of the interim ethical guidelines on human in vitro fertilization and embryo replacement issued in May by the British Medical Association. The guidelines approve the therapeutic use of the new techniques. Like the provisional guidelines published last year by the Medical Research Council, they also endorse research on early embryos if the goal of such research is clearly defined and clinically relevant.
