This article presents a discussion about questions surrounding the intersections between psychology and bioethics. Many dilemmas involving psychology are already being faced by professionals working with health. Although there are important theoretical aspects to be considered in the study of psychology today, such as the moral dilemmas common to human development in the middle of technological advances, like assisted reproduction, gender selection, terminality and others, but not only those. We also consider as pertaining to the fields of ethics and bioethics the evolutionary tasks of human beings, such as the option for maternity/paternity, and the mental and environmental conditions to these decisions, among others. That said, we suggest the dialogue between bioethics and psychology hoping to approach two areas of knowledge by aiming to reconsider the attitudes and the world views of professionals working directly with the humane. 

Keywords : psychology; bioethics; ethical dilemmas.
