ABSTRACT
The article discusses the ethics involved in the field of biomedical research and human embryology. In this context, the author has made use of some studies based on embryonic stem cell research and cloning. These studies have posed a question on the existence and well-being of human beings in the society. In Germany, both an abortion and an embryo transfer against the will of a woman are ethically not justifiable and are considered as punishable.
