Guidelines on preserving

The National Bioethics Council presented to Health Ministry director-general Dr. Eitan Ha-Am on Tuesday its recommendations for guidelines on taking ova from women and freezing them for their future use. Women whose fertility would at risk from chemotherapy or other treatments or who do not yet have partners would be able to have their ova removed and preserved until they need them. The ministry said that it will study the recommendations and promote the setting of arrangements based on them - in coordination with the National Council for Obstetrics and Gynecology and after consulting with the ministry's legal adviser.
