AbstractWhen confronting the issues related to developments in modern medicine and biotechnology, we must repeatedly ask ourselves anew what can and cannot be justified in an ethical sense. For radically new ethical questions seem to arise through innovative techniques, such as stem cell research or preimplantation diagnosis, and with them new areas of conflicting interests. If one scrutinizes the previous positions related to this subject, it becomes conspicuous that a multitude of questions has quickly piled up; however, (as in the case of Germany) comprehensive and differentiated views have mostly been lacking.
