Legal opinion on the substantive assessment of a Government bill on medical treatment of infertility
Languages of publication
Some permissive and, at the same time, controversial solutions proposed in the bill are wrongly presented as the implementation of European Union law. This applies, in particular, to the construct of “donation”. This permissive idea, unknown to European law, creates the opportunity of far-reaching abuse, including the acceptance of the practice of surrogacy and the acquisition of parental rights by persons living in homosexual relationship. The bill treats instrumentally participants of assisted reproduction procedures, especially those who are in the embryonic stage of human development, violating thereby the constitutional guarantees of human life and dignity. It also allows for eugenic selection of human embryos, providing a very narrow limitation in this respect. The anonymity of a donor of reproductive cells, proposed in the bill, breaches in many respects the principle of protecting the child’s interests.
