Croatia widens access to assisted reproduction
CWN - July 16, 2012
Croatian legislators have voted to expand legal access to assisted reproduction, easing the terms of a law that was already one of the most liberal in Europe.
Ignoring opposition from the Catholic hierarchy as well as conservative political groups, the Croatian parliament approved a new bill that allows couples to save their own sperm and eggs for use in in vitro fertilization procedures, to contract with donors, and to freeze embryos. The bill still bans surrogate motherhood, and does not allow lesbian couples to use assisted-reproduction techniques.
