Assisted reproduction can raise complicated ethical challenges for the individuals involved, health care professionals, and the greater society. Infertility treatments today create new definitions of parents and children and require a rethinking of the conventional notions of family. For families facing infertility, decisions about family building become complex. One ethical dilemma associated with ARTs involves the politics of embryos and what to do with unused embryos. Many couples fertilize as many eggs as they can during their treatments and freeze any remaining embryos for later use. Kindly I need my dilemma to be clarified. I do hope that you will give me a straight answer. Since many people have been avoiding such question.
