Opinion on a Government bill on medical treatment of infertility
Languages of publication
The method of regulating the issue of infertility treatment, including the use of in vitro fertilization procedures, does not raise any substantive doubts. The solutions adopted in the bill correspond to international standards and do not raise objections of a constitutional nature. The bill is a result of a reasonable compromise between the need to recognize the rights of people affected by infertility and the need to protect the embryo and the concerns for the welfare of the unborn child. It may, however, give rise doubt as to the granting of rights to use the procedures of medically assisted procreation only to people who are in marriage or partnership relations, which could be seen as discrimination against single women. Moreover, the imposition of a statutory limitation on the number of oocytes undergoing fertilization is detrimental to women’s health. The bill requires editorial corrections.
