We could do the summary of the many and very long previous episodes.
Making the list of threats, of insults, of deplatformingdoors slammed in our faces, of all the times we have been mocked, ridiculed and pilloriedof the international blacklists who have marked us out as absolute enemies, such as homophobic, retrograde, residual, outside history, reactionary, bigoted, witch, Terf.
We could tell you how thehuge assisted reproduction business countered us. We could tell you how the left, women and men, senselessly repudiated and 'expelled' us without even recognising us as possible interlocutors. We could remind you all the books and articles we have written, the debates we animated, the events in which we participated, boycotted by the mainstream media.
Instead we just want to declare our emotion and happiness after so many years of commitment to the law on the uterus for rent universal offence that the House approved by a large majority -the left voted against, with rare exceptions, with largely specious arguments-. Clamorous was the absence in the chamber of Elly Schlein e Giuseppe Conte.
We thank the first petitioner Carolina Varchi, courageous and tenacious, and also no-surrogacy groups and associations from all over the world have generously supported us and waited with us for this moment.
In autumn the law must also be approved in the Senate: It will first go to the Justice Commission and finally to the courtroom for final approval. There is no reason to fear that it will not pass.
There will be no shortage of obstacles when it comes to the concrete application of the rule and when - it is almost a foregone conclusion - someone will raise the question of constitutionality. But we are confident: the most is done, for the sake of violated women and children made into commodities.
In the hope that Italian law can be a stimulus and a pioneering model for legislation in other countries in the defence of fundamental human rights. E that the pool of principals shrinks until it disappears.
At the moment, only happiness.
