WoW at the UN in Geneva.

WoW at the UN in Geneva.

El pasado 8 y 9 de Septiembre, Azulema Mingarro, de Women of the World, estuvo en la sede de Naciones Unidas en Ginebra para prevenir que los vientres de alquiler se conviertan en una práctica avalada por este organismo internacional, lo que al final significaría la legitimación de este negocio, un negocio claro tráfico de personas y la explotación del cuerpo de las mujeres a nivel mundial.

Se reunió con las misiones permanentes de algunos países de Europa en los que actualmente está prohibida la subrogación, aunque en mucho de ellos se puede inscribir a los bebés encargados en el extranjeros.. Y entregó el informe Vientres de Alquiler: Una nueva forma de explotación de Mujeres y Tráfico de Personas, co-editado por Women of the World, y la Declaración de Expertos para la Abolición de los Vientres de Alquiler, una iniciativa de Profesionales por la Ética a la que se sumó Women of the World. Se entregó a las misiones permanentes de España, Italia, Eslovenia, Rumania, Jordania, Nicaragua, Alemania, Austria, y Finlandia.

El debate aún no ha llegado a la Naciones Unidas pero sí está presente en otros organismos internacionales, a los que Women of the World viajará también. Estamos convencidos de que esta batalla la ganaremos denunciando con antelación este gran problema de violación de los derechos de la mujer y la explotación de sus cuerpos en los foros internacionales más relevantes en lugar de aguardar a que se permita esta práctica en el ámbito Internacional ya sea de forma progresiva o inesperadamente.

Last  September 8th and 9th, Azulema Mingarro, representing Women of the World Platform and M" Luisa Peña, from Profesionales por la Ética, visited the United Nations Office at Geneva with the main intention of preventing surrogacy from being supported by this international institution, which ultimately would mean legitimizing this business, that not only involves human trafficking but also the worldwide exploitation of women’s bodies.

They contacted some of the permanent missions (diplomatic representatives of each country) in Geneva. These missions were almost exclusively from European countries where surrogacy is currently banned, although in some of them, the legal registration of foreign babies is allowed. 

They were handed the Surrogate Motherhood, Wombs for hire: A new way of exploiting Women and Human Trafficking report, co-edited by the Women of the World Platform, as well as the International Statement of Experts for the Universal Abolition of Surrogacy, an initiative presented by Professional for Ethics that was supported by Women of the World. These two documents were given to the permanent missions of Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Romania, Jordan, Nicaragua, Germany, Austria and Finland.

The debate has not yet reached the United Nations but it’s present in other international organizations, which Women of the World is also planning to go to. We are convinced that we will win this battle by the early denounce of the violation of women’s rights and the exploitation of their bodies in the most important international forums, rather than waiting until this damaging practice becomes legal, either gradually or unexpectedly.
