René Frydman

God, Medicine and the Embryo Publication date : August 1, 1997

With ethical questions raised about medically assisted pregnancies and medical experimentation, the eugenics debate has become a mute point. Yet bioethical legislation has remained ambiguous. René Frydman has made himself the ardent defender of progenics, a predictive and humanistic medicine. Here, Frydman reflects on the problem of the human embryo through the different points of view of science, religion, law, and morality, and answers ethical and religious questions that he has been asked by his patients.

René Frydman is a gynecologist-obstetrician and a member of the FrenchEthics Committee.
