HEALTH AND BIOETHICS ISSUES IN HALACHA.
At the 2007 NCJWA Conference in Sydney, the panel at the Health Forum session included a local Rabbi in charge of supervising the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF) for Orthodox couples, so that the transfer of sperms from donor to recipient should not be accidentally contaminated IN THE TEST TUBES or mixed up!(Accidents have been recorded in the past all over the world!) Now it seems that there is an organization AND FERTILITY CENTER IN Jerusalem which helps Jewish couples with all their infertility needs.
Founded in 1995, Zir Chemed has helped thousands of Jewish couples resolve their infertility needs by reconciling the complex and sometimes competing demands of science , halacha (Jewish law) and human emotions. The medical staff of nine-- including physicians; research scientist; fertility psychologist and privately trained medical secretaries -- provides medical treatment and emotional counseling within a Jewish framework. Zir Chemed is renowned throughout Israel – and the world – for its high rate of success . Plans are in progress to build a long-awaited state of the art diagnostic center in Jerusalem to better serve the Zir Chemed clients. For more information visit: www.zirchemed.org
