Actualizable potential, reproduction, and embryo research: bringing embryos into existence for different purposes or not at all.

Abstract:
In several papers, John Harris has argued that if i) it is morally permissible to engage in reproduction, whether natural or artificial, despite knowledge that a large number of embryos will fail to implant and quickly die, thenii) it is morally permissible to produce embryos for other purposes that involve killing them, for instance, to harvest stem cells that may be used to save lives. © 2010 Cambridge University Press.
