The couples of women or women alone could have access to medically assisted procreation (PMA). Following the favourable opinion of the national consultative ethics committee (CCNE), Christophe Castaner, the government spokesperson, indicated that the legislation might evolve.

“This opinion goes in the sense of positions of Emmanuel Macron during the presidential campaign,” he recalled, before adding : “Our objective is to translate from a legislative point of view the opinion” of the CCNE.

A promise that has not fallen in deaf ears. The human rights defenders, and persons LBGT have already warned that they do lâcheraient nothing. After you have greeted ” a view is a progressive and humanist “, the association SOS homophobia has indicated a desire to meet with the government ” as soon as possible to ensure the rapid adoption of this important legislation. “

But on the side of the State, seem to prefer to take his time. The spokesman has not specified any timeframe, explaining that “it is important to seek the widest consensus” and ” serenity “.

It should be understood that, within the ethics committee, access to LDCS for all women, is open to debate. Eleven members have signed a dissenting opinion in which they denounce ” the institutionalization of families without a father “. A view shared by the former member of The Republican (LR), Dr. Jean Leonetti. On Twitter, he said he was surprised by the contrast between the decision of the CCNE and the argument “prudence” of the committee, and asks : “Can we bring up a child without a father ? “
