Italy’s constitutional court overturned a ban on using donor sperm and eggs in fertility treatments on Wednesday, knocking down part of a divisive set of restrictions on assisted reproduction.
The court said in a statement the ban breached the constitution without going into any further detail and lawyers in the case said the ruling was effective immediately. Under current law in Italy a single person and same sex couples are banned from using fertility treatment. The law also outlaws the use of embryos and scientific research although the constitutional court will discuss this matter in June 2018. We eagerly await events.
