We at Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body, RadFem Italy and FINAARGIT ((International feminist network against all artificial reproduction, gender ideology and transhumanism)) with the support of all associations worldwide that oppose so-called gestation for others, from Ciams to Stop Surrogacy Now, and by eminent personalities of international feminism such as Sylviane Agacinski, Gena Corea, Phyllis Chesler and Jennifer Lahl
- We reiterate our condemnation of the practice and we renew our wish that the uterus for rent law 'universal offence'currently being debated in the House, be approved with the broadest consensus and as quickly as possible
- We also express great 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 the one into the womb of the other that will conduct the gestation, a technique that gives substance to a hallucinatory fantasy of homo-fecundity by putting physical and psychological health of both women and child at risk
- We invite heterosexual and homosexual couples who have used surrogacy, as well as women's couples who have undergone heterologous fertilisation abroad, or Ropa, or have conceived naturally and who also wish recognition for the 'intended mother' (as is the case of 33 couples from Padua whose birth certificates were challenged by the Public Prosecutor's Office) to address the Juvenile Courts with the utmost urgency for the sake of the children -which we all hold dear- in order to initiate the paperwork for adoption in special cases (or stepchild adoption, perfectly legitimising), the path indicated for these cases by the United Sections of the Supreme Court of Cassation (30 December 2022, No. 38162). In these hours the ECHR, European Court of Human Rights, reiterated that thehe adoption route in special cases is a perfectly reasonable option to protect children and their emotional relationship with the 'intended' parent. We also hope that adoption procedures can be completed as quickly as possible, compatible with the primary interest which is the protection of the child. Not having access to the possibility of adoption (stepchild) is in the children's best interests
- We believe that once the 'universal offence' uterus for rent law is finally passed, making the ban effective and substantial, it may be appropriate to an 'amnesty' measure offering a legal solution for children who have already come to the world via GPA or other assisted fertilisation techniques by heterosexual or same-sex couples and whose relationship with the 'intended' parent is still pending.
