Medically Assisted Human Reproduction: The Greek View
Medicine and Law: The World Association for Medical Law 2007 June; 26(2): 339-347
Medically assisted human reproduction is a controversial issue that has attracted heated debate over the last two decades. In December 2002 the Greek Parliament passed a law with major social and scientific impact: the Medically Assisted Human Reproduction Act 3089/02. This law establishes the parameters of so-called surrogate motherhood, protects the anonymity of semen donors and sets the legal framework through which a woman's artificial fertilization after her husband's death is allowed. This article aims to discuss the legal ramifications of medically assisted human reproduction and especially the moral and social issues concerning the introduction of surrogate motherhood in Greece.
