UN. CONTACT WITH THE RAPPORTEUR ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN
- Directive on violence against women. 2 amendments attempt to include surrogacy in the list of violence against women, but to no avail. Too many MEPs are fighting to reject the condemnation of pimping and the purchase of sex in favour of “forced prostitution” (a pleonasm!). What’s more, rape will be excluded from this directive! It’s a disgrace! Protest by signing this petition before 22 June 2023. Click HERE
- Revision of the anti-trafficking directive. We are trying to get an amendment to classify surrogacy as trafficking
- Cross-border family situations – recognition of parenthood This approach is similar to that of the Hague Conference on “parentage in the context of surrogacy”. It is therefore dangerous because it will contribute to the social acceptance of surrogacy. Unfortunately, Ursulla Van der Leyen, to whom we wrote, and the parliamentary assistant we met do not see the problem.
The Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH). We must continue our action
