Abstract: A very current topic in bioethical research is the impact that the technology of obtaining artificial gametes can have on society and humanity itself. One of the technologies of obtaining the artificial gametes allows the transformation of the epithelial cells (skin) into totipotent stem cells (cells that can transform into any type of tissue), hence, obtaining gametes (human reproductive cells), both masculine and feminine, starting from the cells of a single donor. This article’s theme is the possible religious impact of genetic single-parenting.
