Abstract
As a result of the difficulties in oocyte retrieval and conservation, oocyt e donation has become a very controversial topic because of the ethical iss ues involved. The present essay evaluates, under ethical rationality, the d ifferent implications of diverse forms of oocyte obtention and their reperc usions on assisted reproduction and the related social aspects.
