On the risks of the ROPA method
The technique used by an increasing number of lesbian couples consists of using the oocyte of one to make an embryo that will then be inserted into the womb of the other who will carry the pregnancy. This practice is physically and psychologically dangerous both for the two women and for the child that will be born. This is why
In our recent communiqué Per il vero bene dei bambini (For the true good of the children) we expressed our concern about the increasing use by female couples of the ROPA technique (Recepción de ovocitos de la pareja), i.e. the transfer of the fertilised oocyte of one into the womb of the other who will carry out the gestation. For this stance we have received acclaim, some insults and many requests for information and sources. What does the ROPA method consist of and what are its risks? For the [...]

This time it is: in the skin of children
Against the ruling of the Court of Cassation, which prevents the full transcription of birth certificates of children born from surrogacy by allowing only the biological parent to be named and indicating stepchild adoption for his or her partner, some male couples in Milan are undertaking a new form of resistance: not even registering the biological parent - or both or neither - leaving the child in an administrative limbo in which, in this case, he or she would be deprived of the most elementary rights, from paediatrician to school
After the Prefecture of Milan, in application of a ruling by the Court of Cassation, blocked the transcription of the full birth certificates of children born on the initiative of same-sex couples - indicating that only the biological parent should be transcribed and the stepchild adoption, i.e. adoption in special cases, which is perfectly legitimate, should be the only way forward - the municipality of Milan is experiencing this, according to the report by Roberta Osculati, PD vice-president of the City Council: same-sex couples [...].

Prefect to Mayor Sala: stop registering children of same-sex couples
The decision makes those girls and boys more equal and not unequal as we read in many ideological comments today. Starting with the equal right to the truth about one's origins enshrined in all international conventions. And to the attribution of the same rights of citizenship granted to every new born: that is why
The prefect of Milan has ordered the mayor Beppe Sala to block the transcription of birth certificates of children born by same-sex couples. For example, it will no longer be possible to fully transcribe birth certificates produced abroad - in Ukraine, Canada, California, etc. - by surrogacy, which also applies to heterosexual couples who have undertaken this practice. We radical feminists had appealed to the prefect to order Mayor Sala to respect the [...]

New NO from the Supreme Court to the registration of 'two fathers' from surrogacy
For the second time, the Supreme Court reiterates: those birth certificates drawn up abroad cannot be registered by Italian registry offices. For the biological father's partner, the only way is adoption. Surrogacy remains a high disvalue and violates the dignity of women. Mayor Sala should immediately stop transcribing them, as requested in our complaint
Judgements must be read carefully because the devil, so to speak, is in the details. But there is no doubt that the United Sections of the Court of Cassation, in its ruling 38162 filed yesterday, once again rejected the request for full and automatic registration of the birth certificates of children born abroad by womb surrogacy, allowing the registry office only to indicate the biological parent. The application was very simple. In short: the birth certificate made in Canada of a child born by [...]

Mayor Beppe Sala's 'gift' to Pride
From now on, in Milan, the birth certificates of children of 'homogenous couples' will be automatically registered, including those born from surrogacy. Although the law and subsequent rulings firmly condemn the practice and point the way to 'adoption' for the 'intended' parent. But the registry office is the responsibility of the State, not of local administrations. And the Milanese have never been asked about it: all the critical aspects of a unilateral and very glamorous decision that could also present profiles of unconstitutionality
'We have restarted the recognition of children born in Italy by homogenous couples': the words with which Mayor Beppe Sala announced his personal 'gift' to Pride initially caused some confusion. In fact, children born 'in Italy' on the initiative of - and not 'by' - same-sex couples are only the children of women united with other women. The children of male couples are born in Canada, California or other procreative tourism destinations, but not in Italy [...].

Constitutional Court: a law is needed on the recognition of surrogate children
In a ruling handed down yesterday, the Constitutional Court has called on Italy's parliament to legislate on the issue of the recognition of children born through surrogacy, stating that "without prejudice to the prohibition of surrogacy as a criminal offence, the current legal framework does not ensure full protection of the interests of the child born through this technique": this was announced by the Court's press office ahead of the filing. In short: the order -the No. 8325 / 2020- of the Court of Cassation had put to the Court [...].
