While modern medical technology dealing in infertility treatments and conception, such as IVF (In vitro fertilisation), may appear to be a boon for childless couples, religious debates surround them as man is accused of trying to play God.
Treatments like IVF (In vitro fertilisation) raise many ethical issues in India. This includes contemporary Hindus, Muslims, Christians and followers of all other religions in this culturally diversified nation.
Indian society has a dominating patriarchal biasing that lays great emphasis on the birth of a son in a family. The son is seen as a source of sustenance in old age and the dowry system encourages the notion of a son being a source of wealth.

In Hinduism, there are rituals that are necessary to be performed by a son to secure the afterlife of his parents.
, this intense desire for sons overshadows any conflict with the ‘unnaturalness’ of procedures like IVF in which the eggs from a woman are fertilized with sperms from a man, outside the woman’s body in a lab to form the embryo.

The IVF must not take place after a couple’s divorce or after the death of a husband. IVF is generally acceptable if it occurs during a couple’s marriage.
The Roman Catholic Church strongly rejects any assisted reproduction including IVF. They debase any practice of manipulating human embryos. Amongst Jews,ghd
