Probably, since most houses' waste lines are higher than the basement floor.

Installing bathroom in basement

Check with local building codes regarding code requirements and inspections.

When we put a bathroom in the basement, they installed a pump to flush "up" ... against the force of gravity. It has to be that kind of a pump in order to have enough force to work against gravity. Otherwise your basement bathroom would not smell pleasant.
