dc.abstract.en In my previous paper I argued that if in vitro fertilization (IVF) is legal and practiced there is no moral ground to object to legalization of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Xavier Symons raises an objection that my paper “fails to address the ethical argumentation of one key opponent of IVF - the Catholic Church”. In this reply I show that his thesis that embryos created during IVF are in "ethical limbo" and “fall outside the moral universe of Christian ethics” does not undermine my argumentation and masks the serious problem Catholics have with the moral status of early embryos. pl
