Abstract

In the article the author discusses the issue of protection of dignity of a human embryo. Human dignity as a directly applicable category may serve for the purpose of defining the status of human embryo. Human dignity has a unique feature in accordance with which it expands its application to human being at the very first stage of its development, when he is still an embryo, including creation of an embryo by in vitro fertilization and does not end by the death of the person. The author analyzing the existing international documents on human embryos discusses the right of a human embryo to development as a way how to protect the dignity of a human embryo.

Keywords: biomedicine, human embryo, in vitro fertilization, human dignity, right to development
