More than 7 out of 10 French people against the urgent return of the bioethics bill authorizing assisted reproduction without a father

More than 7 in 10 French people do not want the urgent return of the bioethics bill authorizing assisted reproduction without a father. For them, the Covid crisis imposes other priorities.

Awhen a few parliamentarians campaign for a quick return to parliamentary debates on the bioethics bill, the French have many other priorities. This is what emerges from theIfop survey carried out from June 12 to 15 with a representative sample of 1005 people.

The priorities of the French for the next 12 months are clear: safeguarding employment (42%), purchasing power (41%) and the efficiency of the health system (37%). Next come security (23%), environmental protection and the fight against climate change (23%), education (17%) and the future of the pension system (16%), but also immigration, the fight against racism, the balance of public accounts, domestic violence ... Medically assisted reproduction for single women and female couples ranks last (1%). And when the French are asked to comment specifically on this question of assisted reproduction for single women or female couples, they are more than 6 in 10 (61%) say it is not a priority. And they are even more numerous among Emmanuel Macron's voters (64%).

Logically, less than 3 in 10 French people (29%) want the resumption of parliamentary debates on the bioethics bill, and even less among the voters of Emmanuel Macron: only 21%. On the other hand, a very large majority of French people, more than 7 French in 10 (71%) believe that the bioethics bill must remain suspended or withdrawn to give priority to the management of the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis. The pressure exerted by a few deputies for a resumption of parliamentary debates on the bioethics bill is also perceived by nearly two-thirds of French people (62%) as a diversionary maneuver or electoral tactic in the current context of health and economic crisis. and social.

The results are clear. The French are waiting for action from the government and its majority to respond to the emergencies of the Coronavirus crisis: employment, purchasing power, health system. In contrast to a return to the “world before”, they want the bioethics bill to be suspended or even withdrawn. The priority is to improve the country, the society and its economy.
