dc.description.abstractEdwards, a well-known British researcher on in vitro fertilization (IVF), and Puxon, a barrister, discuss the issue of parental consent to the use of spare embryos in research. Arguing that at present consent is desirable, if not strictly necessary, they identify two motives for obtaining consent--legal protection for the researcher, and the parents' rights and duties toward their offspring. They also consider the assumptions under which embryo research may be carried out and its fundamental importance to the clinical application of IVF. Clarification of the embryo's legal status, they conclude, is necessary before the question of consent can be fully answered. (KIE abstract)en
