Open letter to Health Minister Schillaci: medically assisted procreation does not increase the birth rate. On the contrary, it is among the causes of the demographic winter

Free homologous fertilisation and a €1,500 ticket for heterologous fertilisation: the minister announces new measures that would help stem the birth crisis. But it is the exact opposite: the more we feed the illusion of being able to postpone the birth of a child ad libitum - the results of PMA are poor: in more than 8 out of 10 cases it fails - the fewer children will be born. There is only one way: infertility prevention. Starting with correct information against the propaganda of the reproductive biomarket

Dear Minister Schillaci, we learn from press reports that as of 1 January next year the National Health Service will provide homologous fertilisation services free of charge and that it has established a co-payment for heterologous fertilisation - the responsibility of the region - which is expected to be around 1,500 euro. The provision would be part, according to him, of the measures against the birth rate in our country: less than 400 thousand births in 2022, the lowest number since the unification of Italy to date. In reality, as he explains [...]

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council

Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language

It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

The new PD proposal on surrogate children is wrong: here's why

The idea is a facilitated 'rewarding' path -only four months- for the adoption of children born by gestation for others: a quasi-automatism that instead of counteracting it would encourage recourse to the practice. Moreover, a difference is made between this type of adoptee -GPA clients- and all others for whom the timing would not change. But the Constitution wants us equal before the law

The PD has deposited in the Senate -first signatory the cathodem Alfredo Bazoli, deputy vice-president of the PD group- a bill that provides for a 'special adoption' so-called 'affective' for the children of hetero or homo couples born from uterus for rent. Basically, it accepts the procedure of adoption in special cases of those born by Gpa for the 'intentional' parent, but calls for it to be accelerated to arrive at a ruling within four months. The court, therefore, the text reads, "shall verify whether the [...]

Female wombs in male bodies

The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists

Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs

A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.

On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].

Greece, womb and baby trafficking: babies 'kidnapped', couples stuck waiting

Team from the Mediterranean Fertility Institute in Crete arrested on suspicion of human and gamete trafficking, fraud and forgery. Many dozens of poor women from Eastern Europe persuaded to allow themselves to be exploited in order to supply children to mostly Australian principals

The Mediterranean Fertility Institute, a surrogacy clinic in Crete, was raided by the police on suspicion of human trafficking and fraud, and the entire medical team was arrested and taken to prison on charges of child trafficking. According to Greek police, a group of traffickers had co-opted 160 poor women -Ukrainian, Romanian, Moldavian, Albanian and Georgian- convincing them to provide egg cells and lend themselves as wombs for rent for a few tens of euros per month, housing them in [...]

Denmark: no more hormones for children! Even trans people say so

After the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands also Denmark says stop to puberty blockers for gender non-conforming girls: those drugs are experimental and there is no scientific evidence that they work. But here the government initiative is supported by important LGBT associations: this is the first time it has happened. And in Italy? You cannot even know how many minors are treated

Denmark is also backtracking on puberty blockers for children confused about their sex: the Danish health system will henceforth offer psychological therapies and no longer drugs to adolescents who have not reported discomfort with their birth sex since childhood. This was announced by Health Minister Sophie Løhde during a parliamentary debate that rejected a proposal by the populist Nye Borgerlige (New Zealand) party to completely ban gender transition for minors.

Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? For a RadFem economic theory, speech by Sheila Jeffreys
The traditional economy based on the 'rational' homo oeconomicus never takes into account the base of the iceberg: the huge amount of unpaid female labour without which the system simply would not stand. The necessary change does not come from the inclusion of more women in a model that is based on aggression, gambling and risk, but from a new paradigm that places the value of people, relationships and care at the centre
At a recent seminar organised by Women's Declaration International as part of its Radical Feminist Perspectives series, Sheila Jeffreys -former professor of political science at the University of Melbourne and one of the founders of the global WDI network- gave a talk on Rad Fem Economic Theory (the entire meeting can be viewed here). Jeffrey started from a text she wrote in 2010, on the heels of the global financial crisis. It was called 'Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner', whose thought completely omitted the [...]

Health is a feminist issue
There is a lack of will to save public healthcare. Instead, private investment is growing exponentially. Without a paradigm shift, without putting the relationship back at the centre of care and human coexistence, we will not see real change. This is the change in civilisation that we have been talking about for some time.
In the course of the fourth Covid wave, we reaffirmed - if there was any need - the disaster of local public health care: super-conscientious but overburdened and unreachable - or on the run - general practitioners, no support, stressed or non-existent Usca, do-it-yourself tampons, the bricolage of self-care. And every other health problem neglected and postponed sine die. Almost every family has experienced the problem up close. A stress-test that brought to light the problems accumulated over years and years of bad practices [...]

The health care we want: women's difference in care
Value of care, community health, the maternal relationship model: how women can govern health for all, while remaining themselves
The book project The Health Care We Want. Women-oriented care comes from the work and experience of women in medicine during the long suspended time of the pandemic. An infinite shift made up of elementary and specialist care, of consolidated experience and experimentation, of "cold blood" and fragility, in which their presence made the difference. After the first phase of the lockdown, with the ineffectiveness of the directorates, the uselessness of the managerial pyramids, the absence of a long look of the policy, we have analysed the [...]

Why media, companies and advertising support Queer
With rare exceptions, the media regularly obscure any news that might create problems for the transhuman and queer business, a target that enjoys a great deal of positive attention. A few examples. There was almost complete global silence on the Keira Bell ruling in the UK, which introduced the obligation to go to court to administer puberty blockers to girls and boys: on the very same day (!), however, the media system all over the world celebrates the Hollywood transition of Ellen-Elliot Page. Hard struggles to make [...]

Freeing women's energies: how the French model of care works
Among the many proposals that women's groups and associations, such as those gathered in Half of it, are bringing to the attention of the future government and on the table of the Recovery Plan is also a reform of welfare and services in support of female employment - and consequently of the birth rate. Linda Laura Sabbadini often refers to the so-called French model. Let's see here in detail what it consists of (the following is an identical speech of mine in the PD National Direction in [...].

Budget and Recovery Plan: not a recovery for women
"Woman is the other in relation to man. Man is the other than woman. Equality is an ideological attempt to enslave woman to higher levels". Carla Lonzi, Carla Accardi, Elvira Banotti Manifesto di Rivolta Femminile - Rome 1970. Merciless numbers for female employment: in December, ISTAT recorded a drop in the number of jobs of 0.4% compared to November, 101 thousand fewer employed. Of those 101 thousand, 99 thousand are women (98%) and 2 thousand are men. On a [...]

What is the place of women in the Great Reset?
Covid-19-The Great Reset (Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, Forum Publishing 2020: no Italian translation yet) illustrates the project of rebuilding the world after the Coronavirus (BC). I don't think that would be the world I would like to live in. The point of observation: Schwab is founder and president of the World Economic Forum -the text is formally the WEF's proposal for post-pandemic reconstruction and will be the focus of the Davos 2021 dialogues- while Malleret is manager of Monthly Barometer, [...]
