Islam and infertility treatments

Main Points

Islam accepts IVF and AIH becasuse:

  • The egg and sperm are from the husband and wife
  • All Muslims sould have a family
  • The unused embryos are not foetuses so life is not being taken

Islam does not allow any other treatments becasue:

  • They deny a child's right to know its natural parents
  • Egg or sperm donation is like asultery
  • They are the same as adoption which is banned in Islam
