Womb for rent fair in Milan: open letter to Mayor Sala

Scheduled for 21-22 May, the event will re-launch the GPA business after a slowdown due to the pandemic. But in Italy, advertising the buying and selling of children is a crime. We therefore call on the Mayor, the Council and the City Council to alert the police and to take any initiative against this blatant violation of the law.

To the Mayor of Milan Beppe Sala

To the Council

To the City Council

We learn that the 21-22 May in Milan at the Spazio Antologico-East End Studios in via Mecenate 84 A Dream Called Babyuterus for rent fair organised by the promoters of the 'salon', which has already stopped off in Paris, Cologne, Munich and Berlin, and is now coming to Italy for the first time (see here e here).

The intention is relaunching a business, the buying and selling of childrena 'sector' which, like many others, has suffered setbacks and losses due to the pandemic.

Asked about the initiative, at the time Mayor Beppe Sala had guaranteed that no public space would be granted for the event, and that the administration also failed to 'grant any authorisation, sponsorship or other support to the initiative'.

Fiera dell'utero in affitto a Milano: lettera aperta al Sindaco Sala

The space, although private, is nevertheless an offence under Law 40/2004, which not only prohibits and penalises gestation for others carried out in Italy, but also punishes simple propagandawhere it states that "Any person who, in any form whatsoever, carries out, organises or advertises the commercialisation of gametes or embryos or surrogacy shall be punished by the following penalties imprisonment from three months to two years and a fine ranging from EUR 600,000 to EUR 1 million"(Art. 12(6)).

We would therefore like to know whether the Mayor, the Council and the City Council, having been informed well in advance of the offence-crime event scheduled to take place at the East End Studios, would not consider it necessary to take steps to pre-alerting the forces of law and order as well as undertaking any other initiative aimed at preventing the announced violation of Italian law, which is achieved by advertising a practice that in addition to trading in human beings "intolerably offends the dignity of women and deeply undermines relationships'. (Constitutional Court, judgment 272/2017)

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 [...]
