What may happen if embryos are deemed persons at fertilization?

What may happen if embryos are deemed persons at fertilization?

Philosophical issue: On this earth, life only comes from life. A living being only comes from living material, but the problem occurs when we humans try to agree on when something is "alive", and at what point that "alive" something can be called a person, an animal, or a plant.

When you do chromosome testing or pgs, the biopsy or cells are taken from the trophectoderm cells or future placental cells that are at the outer wall of the embryo. Removing several of these cells from a day five embryo, or blastocyst, by a skilled embryologist, should not harm the embryo or the resulting baby. Hope this helps. ...Read more
