Resumen

GOMEZ FAJARDO, Carlos Alberto. THE NEW RAFT OF THE MEDUSA: THE REMAINING EMBRYOS. ON THE DEHUMANIZATION IN ONE PARTICULAR ASPECT OF THE APPLICATION OF CONTEMPORARY TECHNOSCIENCE. Escritos - Fac. Filos. Let. Univ. Pontif. Bolivar. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.54, pp.221-240. ISSN 0120-1263.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18566/escr.v25n54.a10.

The article aims to present bioethical and anthropological considerations regarding the documented fact of the high loss of embryos during Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) treatments for humans. Quantitative data available in the "2013 Assisted Reproductive Technology. National Summary Report" by the CDC is presented and illustrated. Considering the high loss of human lives during the cycles, the lack of solidarity, and the concealment of respect for the right to life, it is proposed that there is a similarity with the tragic situation of the shipwrecked persons of the Méduse at the beginning of the 19th century -depicted in one of Géricault's paintings. From the standpoint of Bioethics, the article also seeks to raise awareness about this issue, because not everything that is technically possible is ethically lawful in light of reason.

Palabras clave : Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART); Technoscience; Dehumanization; Bioethics; Awareness.
