Gianessa Gambetta, Rebekah Hardman, Thomas Phan, Malia Teets – Human Embryo’s Moral Standing

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Rebecca Larsen

We discuss the moral standing of embryos created for use in in-vitro fertilization treatments. We argue that they cannot be considered children for two main reasons: they are a cluster of unspecialized cells and haven’t been implanted into a uterus yet. This means that it is ethical to use human embryos for research into human embryonic stem cell treatments.
