This article has aimed to analyzing right to childbearing of couples who due to having faulty genes, the risk of similar disorders for their children is high. In other words given that when the parents suffer genetic disorder simultaneously the risk of similar disorders for their children is high, could we prevent them from natural childbearing? It is evident that this question is apart from the medical measures such as diagnostic tests which we should use them in this article for decrease the related probability. We try to study legal and ethical propositions that they are heard from Politicians and experts about the necessity of prevention of couples with genetic disorders from childbearing. This proposition is being raised even for specialists in infertility treatment. So we studied human rights documents and internal regulations about right to childbearing of couples with genetic disorders and then we analyzed legally and ethically to get this right. This article emphasizes on the necessity multidimensional analysis and to avoid ignoring the issues that they are apparently less important or they don’t stimulate tendency for defend under influence of the dominant and popular debates.
