Baby Fair in Milan: something to hide?

A strict and detailed code of conduct imposed on those attending Wish for a Baby, an assisted reproduction exhibition. Strictly personal badges, a ban on filming and handing out flyers, the threat of expulsion, even appropriate clothing, bag searches and scanners. And uniformed or plainclothes policemen to keep watch. Why so much caution? Isn't this just an information event on the various techniques? Perhaps there will also be talk of surrogacy, the propaganda of which is a crime in Italy? Or are they just trying to frighten off those who intend to be there to peacefully protest against the reproduction market?

Those who signed up for the Baby Fair Wish for a Baby scheduled for next 20-21 May in Milan received in the last few hours this strict and detailed code of conduct which she must strictly adhere to if she wants to be admitted to the event. But if it is, as explained on the websiteof 'celebrating a new life', meeting 'the best fertility experts from around the world', 'attending seminars' and obtaining information, why all this caution? What is so secret about assisted fertilisation techniques?

Is it not by chance that the Fair will also talk about surrogacy, a practice banned in Italy and whose mere propaganda is also punished? And if so, why, as they say, will they even be present "uniformed and plainclothes policemen'? Are they private police, or would the police then possibly be called upon to protect those who might break the law? Or have they been given assurances that there will be no mention of uterus for rent at the event?

Or is it simply the attempt to scare off those who are legitimately organising peaceful protests against the market in human life? (we highlight two of them)

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 [...]

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 [...]

Male bodies in women's sports: finally something is moving
It's about time: FIDAL, the Italian Athletics Federation, complies with the directives of World Athletics to ensure fairness in women's sports competitions by dictating strict conditions for the participation of trans women athletes. Meanwhile, Martina Navratilova makes it clear that 'women's tennis is not for failed males' by rebelling against an injustice that, she says, 'is patriarchy'.
While tennis player Martina Navratilova is being heaped with contumely for stating the obvious, namely that she is fed up with seeing male bodies thriving in women's tennis (the latest case being that of US transwoman Alicia Rowley, you can see her in the centre of the opening photo) adding that 'women's tennis is not for failed males' and that 'it is patriarchy for biological men to insist on the right to compete in the women's category in sport' (La Repubblica speaks with dismay and [...]
