Abstract

Ethical issues in the clinical practice of fetal medicine are discussed, largely from the point of view of early prenatal medicine. The discussion concentrates on several aspects including the time when human life begins, the pros and cons of fetal medicine, and ethical guidelines for fetal medicine. The emphasis is placed on the importance of informed consent and an increase in genetical knowledge amongst the general public.
