Medically assisted reproduction for women couples to be put aside by the Elysée ?

The rainbow children, “Association for families and future LGBT families” published a declaration on its’ site after their reception at the Elysée on December 8, by the director of Francois Hollande’s cabinet. This association, which campaigns especially in favor of access to assisted reproduction and surrogacy practices for same-sex couples, concluded upon exiting the appointment that the president of the French Republic will take no political initiative concerning opening access to gestational surrogacy for women couples. According to the Elysée statement, they will await counsel from the French National Consultative Ethics Committee, specifying that even if it would gives a favorable declaration, this issue would be a subject of debate during the next revision of the bioethics law, as provided by the law.
