Insemination post-mortem approved: regulatory body says law “impossible to apply”

In another ‘groundbreaking moment’ which could come to nothing parliament has today approved an alteration in the law governing medically assisted procreation, legalising insemination post mortem. Explain reports, if promulgated by the President of the Republic, it will mean a woman can be impregnated with the sperm of her deceased husband or partner up to six months after the latter’s death. In the meantime, the national council for medically assisted procreation (CNPMA) has said it has no idea how it could possibly authorise such a situation and as such the law becomes impossible to apply.
