Nature as a model for in vitro fertilisation

The Polish government introduced a bill on artificial insemination on Tuesday stipulating among other things that husbands must give their approval before the insemination takes place, while unmarried partners need not. This article must be dropped, the MEP and biologist Agnieszka Kozłowska-Rajewicz writes on the blog portal naTemat: "From a biological point of view the man can't just suddenly withdraw his consent once fertilisation has taken place - and that should not be the case here either. The resulting embryo simply settles in the womb and the pregnancy takes its course. And the law must regulate the process in the same way. Spouses and unmarried partners must be treated equally. From a legal standpoint this would be best expressed by simply dropping the obligation to obtain consent."
