Experts demand legalisation of fertility method in Spain
Experts call for the procedure where a woman cedes her womb to carry another couple’s baby to be legalised.8 July 2008
BARCELONA - Attendees of the European Reproductive Medicine Congress, which began Monday in Barcelona, are demanding the legalisation of a fertility method whereby a woman cedes her womb for the gestation of an embryo fertilised in vitro by another couple.
The practice, which is currently illegal in Spain but regulated in countries such as Britain and the United States, allows women who have undergone a hysterectomy but whose ovaries still produce eggs to have children.
