Live session details
Forum Panel – 75mn
In Islam, seeking a cure for infertility is not only permissible but encouraged, against a backdrop that a recent report showed that compared to a 10 per cent infertility rate worldwide, infertility in the MENA region is approximately 16 per cent.
The Infertility and Islamic Ethics forum panel will discuss assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization, as well as cryopreservation, and how each raise a variety of unique ethical concerns.
