Cases illustrating variables relevant to the following topics are presented: criteria for patient selection, egg “donation” and “surrogacy”, multiple gestations, and disposition of in vitro embryos after infertility treatment. For each topic, empirical and theoretical factors relevant to the cases are discussed from an “egalitarian perspective” that imputes privileged status to the standpoint of those who are “nondominant”. Implications of different positions about the moral status of gametes and embryos are also considered.

Keywords:   patient selection, egg donation, surrogacy, multiple gestation, gametes, in vitro embryos, infertility, reproduction, egalitarian perspective, dominant standpoint
