Weegy: Ethics is critical for a number of reasons, including that with advances in medical care, new spins on ethical dilemmas arise. [ [ For example, before embryos were used for stem cell research, the question of whether destroying a potential life (the embryo) for the greater good hadn't come up in that context. Or what to do when your patients (a married couple) created embryos for implantation, only to divorce while those embryos were still viable. If the couple disagrees on what to do with the embryos, what does the medical professional do?
