As the Spanish Senate is set to debate a new law on assisted reproduction, the association Professionals for Ethics has launched an effort to remind Spaniards of the dignity of the human embryo.
According to Begoña Sanchez Ramos, the coordinator of the effort, the group plans to air spots on local radio stations warning the public that experimentation or modification of human embryos is an offense against human dignity.
“Reality does not change just because the law calls an embryo a pre-embryo,” Sanchez stated, “because a genetic identity and human life are in the newly conceived and will be with it until death.”
The radio spots can be heard at the group’s website: www.profesionalesetica.com.
