If you haven't read this thread yet, a woman recently gave birth to octuplets making her the second person in the world to achieve such a feat. Ethicists have started debating moral issues involved. Main questions are: 1. Should there be a limit to the number of embyros allowed to be implanted in fertility clinics? 2. Is selective reduction (reducing the number of fetuses in a multifetal pregnancy to save other fetuses or lower risk to mom's health) the same as abortion? 3. Should doctors be able to override a patient's request for the sake of saving lives (ex: if patient is emotionally distraught, some decide poorly)? See article for background: Thoughts?
