Fertility: Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (G.I.F.T.)
An ART procedure that involves removing eggs from the woman's ovary, and sperm procured from the man in a morally acceptable fashion and washed of its seminal fluid. The gametes are placed in a laparascope with an air bubble separating the eggs from the sperm, which is placed in the woman's fallopian tube where conception will take place through a small incision in her abdomen.

Moral Evaluation
This method may be moral or immoral depending upon:
  • The method of procuring the sperm and whose gametes are being used. See Begotten Not Made for guidelines.
  • Where the conception takes place and the role of the physician. See Begotten Not Made for guidelines.
