This paper pursues a better interpretation of the new reproductive technologies by making a counterpoint to the scientistic bias of bills being processed in the country that excels in defending the interests of professionals, especially in clinics and laboratories, disregarding the new person generated. The social and scientific relevance of the subject is to reflect on the necessity of attention and caution in the implementation of the new technologies for breeding. Today, technological advancement is closely tied to the means of acquiring power and lacks evaluative constructs. There is a risk of disrespecting constitutional rights. The primary objective of this research is to seek a new valuation of human, social and juristic scientific and technological innovations in the field of assisted reproduction. To attain this end, we will adopt the content analysis methodology, taking as theoretical framework the concept of person developed by Robert Spaemann.
