Dear friends at REDLARA:
In order to encourage a deeper understanding on Bioethics, and promote a debate about diverse Bioethical Issues concerning Assisted Reproduction, we would like to invite you to take part in this FORUM, expressing your ideas, experiences and opinions.
This space, open to ideas exchange, is intended to enlarge our formation in Bioethics, which in turn will contribute to stimulate programs of Bioethics information and knowledge diffusion in our communities: this will help patients and legislators to take better informed decisions in the genuine pursuit of their own well-being, and the better for all.

SBioethics Symposium held in Buenos Aires, supported by RED
The opinions expressed in the document are resultant of an active discussion, without necessarily having an official position of RED.   reply pdf

The Costa Rican Constitutional Court prohibited embryo cryopreservation first and later IVF in 2001. In 2001, the Instituto Costarricense de Infertilidad and several infertile patients sued the Costa Rican government at the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights.

Recently, the commission considers that Costa Rica violates human rigths and recommended that the government approve a law authorizing IVF and that it should provide compensation to all the couples in the suit. The government seems keen to consent to this ruling. However, a small but influential religious group is opposing this move. As a result, the new draft law we now have contradicts both human rights and the most basic scientific evidence.
For instance, the new bill proposes that all fertilized eggs created during the IVF process be transferred directly to the uterus. What will you say to the government if they invite you to give your oppinion?
