Petition on assisted reproduction

08/27/2012
"We call on the European Parliament to ensure that access to infertility and sterility treatment is considered a fundamental human right. The principle of non-discrimination is extended to singles, so that they can have equal access to infertility treatment ."

Whereas
The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (1950) states that “the enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status” (art. 14) and that “1. Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life... 2. There shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others” (art. 8)

With this petition, we call on the European Parliament to ensure that:

Access to infertility and sterility treatment is considered a fundamental human right in accordance with article 14 and article 8 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and of the European Parliament resolution on the demographic future of Europe;

National legislations are made consistent with such fundamental human right;
The cited resolution is intended as respectful of the principle of non-discrimination Discrimination based on religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation;

The principle of non-discrimination is extended to singles, so that they can have equal access to infertility treatment .
