In Poland, single women who have frozen embryos are now barred from accessing them

29 Oct


That summer, the laws covering fertility treatment in Poland were shifting. Informed by the Vatican’s absolute opposition to IVF, the socially conservative Law and Justice Party, known by its Polish acronym, PiS, had put forward legislation that would ban IVF and criminalize its provision. PiS held a minority in Poland’s parliament, but support for the party was growing. A revised version of the IVF bill, seen as a compromise between conservative, Church-backed parties and the governing centrist coalition, proposed to restrict fertility treatment to heterosexual couples who were married or living together. It would require clinics to get signatures from would-be mothers and fathers, who pledged to take legal and financial responsibility for any children they had as a result of the treatment, before IVF could take place.


another provision in the law, intended to insure that unused embryos wouldn’t be destroyed, mandated that they be donated to an infertile heterosexual couple if they weren’t used within twenty years.

    One Sussman isn’t happy with it:) IFV should be probably prohibited completely as the whole process is ghoulish.

    Ghoulish is right. I know that small embryos are routinely conceived by women who don’t even know they’re pregnant until they notice them leave their bodies when they go to the toilet, but it still seems wrong.
    I once found myself listening to a woman who worked in an IVF clinic and she was saying how the staff meet with parents to decide what to do with “defective” or unwanted embryos. She spoke in terms of deciding whether or not to, and I quote, “kill them off”.
    Strange how society tells you to go with your feelings on most other things, but if your gut tells you IVF is evil, well, there’s obviously something wrong with you.

      The poz culture has deified women such that not only can they play god by designing babies but they are also treated as gods because their will is the sole arbiter of life.

      She wants to keep the fetus: it is a (unique) human life. She does not want to keep the fetus: that same life is now just a bundle of (her body) cells.

      Her (50% share of) DNA and (100% of) her will are all that matter. What other being holds that power?

      As for IVF, there is something else that is working its way out. Of the unforeseen consequences variety.

      Many of these kids have issues. Special needs. All that spectrum stuff.

      While its hard to tell with all the victim culture noise in the system, just in my extended family there is something fishy.

      Down the road it will become obvious that nature’s way cannot be replicated in vitro. Last egg and lazy-lucky sperm just aren’t gonna make top shelf children. This is especially the case when these IFV deals are so often also in less than ideal rearing situations, like aging single mothers.

      But hey, she doesn’t feed that special kid GMO food though. That would be wrong.
