Abstract

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is one of the diagnostic methods that is popular because it can be used to determine the sex of the fetus. PGD can be used to create a child to produce HLA matched umbilical cord cells to be used for a sick brother or sister that need transplant. To produce a HLA matched embryo, the embryos that don'thave a HLA matched genetic content, must be killed. Also having a non-expected child to be used for another child is a matter of morality. To evaluate the population viewpoint about this method a survey was performed on different groups of society.The overall acceptance of this method is very low in our religious Iranian society and due to the similarity of opinions of people to clergymenin Iran and faith and strong beliefs of people live in Iran, educating and advertising new methods compatible with their beliefs, for saving sick children may be necessary. © IDOSI Publications, 2013.
