ABSTRACT
The interface between bioethics and law is a current reality regarding the discussion of the use of stem cells and the status of the human embryo in biomedicine. In this scenario, economy and health care are part of this discussion. Historical lines show how the idea of value changed over time, a change that was reflected in the idea of health and in its practice. Culture and profit are two items that also have to be balanced in the connection between market process and human process. In this context, the use of stem cells and the dilemma regarding the status of the human embryo prompt the discussion concerning the conflict that the market can bring to humanity. The idea that justice can be an important organizing principle for public health is a way to shed light on this new market that is growing in the biomedical field. The current challenge is to understand this genetic movement that represents a constant evolution, not only of the biomedical development, but also a changing of social practice.
