JUDAISM AND INFERTILITY TREATMENTS

IVF AND AIH ARE ACCEPTED BY ALL JEWS BECAUSE...

  • Having children is important as it preserves the Jewish faith
  • Rabbis support couples who have fertility problems and feel that God intends for them to use technology to their advantage
  • The discarded embryos are not regarded as life, merely just an attempt at creating life

MOST UNORTHADOX JEWS DON'T ALLOW

  • AID because it is seen as a form of adultery
  • Surrogacy because it is believed that the mother who bears the child passes on the the Jewsh faith 
  • Egg donation, some allow it however the egg donated has to be a Jewish egg
