The European Parliament condemns surrogacy

Last December 17th adopting the Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy in the World 2014 and the European Union’s policy on the matter tabled by MEP Cristian Dan Preda (EPP, Romania), the European Parliament entirely approved paragraph 114, condemning “the practice of surrogacy, which undermines the human dignity of the woman since her body and its reproductive functions are used as a commodity”. Moreover, the European Parliament  “considers that the practice of gestational surrogacy which involves reproductive exploitation and use of the human body for financial or other gain, in particular in the case of vulnerable women in developing countries, shall be prohibited and treated as a matter of urgency in human rights instruments”.

A first big step towards the universal abolition of this practice. Women of the World Platform will continue fighting for it and now with an extra weapon J, a nice Christmas present…!
