12 human beings frozen at the embryo stage will be destroyed when the law on assisted reproduction is passed

In the context of assisted reproduction for all, the government plans to delete 12 embryos because the management would be "anxiety-provoking" for the CECOS teams and a risk of error would create "discrimination".

Lhe draft revision of bioethics laws was presented to the special commission at the National Assembly. On September 12, Patrick Hetzel, MP for Bas-Rhin, opposed the suppression, "With a stroke of the pen", "all embryos human "offered to the reception and" gametes from donations prior to the passage of the law ", proposed in article 3. Currently, according to government figures, 12 frozen embryos are available for donation in centers. study and conservation of human eggs and sperm (CECOS).

“Paragraphs 54 and 55 of article 3 aim to remove all human embryos which are offered for reception and gametes resulting from donations prior to the passage of the law. However, this represents, according to the figures of the Ministry, and what you indicate Madam Minister, 12 human embryos which are available for donation. I would like here that we really ask ourselves the question. Is that how we want to deal with the issue of the human embryo? I think it's still an important topic. Simply with a stroke of the pen to say that we are going to destroy 000, that perhaps deserves a reflection. "

The Minister's response is posted online by The Beige Salon. If she understands that this "can be shocking", she evokes the difficult coexistence "in the CECOS, in the tanks", of "two types of gametes and two types of embryos", namely those received before or after the law.

“I totally understand how shocking it can be. I fully understand that. In reality, we think that it is impossible to make coexist in the CECOS, in the tanks, two types of gametes and two types of embryos. In addition to the fact that the management will be horribly anxiety-provoking for the teams, there is still the risk that some couples will not receive embryos or gametes from the previous diet. And so, we think that it can create discrimination. the reality for the CECOS is that it is imperative that the day we change regimes, we do not allow different embryos to coexist. "

Charles de Courson, deputy for Marne, sees it as a “bureaucratic” argument. Emmanuelle Ménard, deputy for Hérault, considers "more anxiety-provoking for CECOS to destroy embryos rather than to manage two regimes".

Philippe Desmoulins-Lebeault says he is “appalled” and calls out to the participants in the debate:

“Do they know what an embryo is? Do they remember they were embryos? "

The bioethics bill was adopted in committee at the National Assembly and will be examined by the National Assembly from the 24 September.
