Lawyers for children, opposed to surrogacy, seize the Council of State against the salon Désir d'enfant

The liberty summary filed by the Jurists for Children association against the Désir d'enfant salon, accused of promoting surrogacy, was rejected on September 2 by the judge of the Administrative Court. Faced with this decision, the association seized the Council of State. 

Désir d'enfant is a trade fair that will take place on September 5 and 6 at the Espace Champerret in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. He shows up on are website as an event “for anyone who wants to learn more about parenting and fertility”.

“Unique event in France, where you will find, gathered in one place, specialists, advice, products, reliable information and support to help you found or expand your family. "

The show also offers to meet several speakers and speakers from foreign clinics. Conferences such as "Safe surrogacy and the management of Covid 19", "Egg donation and surrogate mother in the United States" or "Surrogacy in North America" ​​are on the program. The association for the defense of the rights of the child, Justice for children, denounces a promotion of surrogacy.

On August 25, Justice for Children had already sent mail to the Paris Police Prefecture to demand “the ban on the show or at least all interventions promoting surrogacy” and thus “put an end to the violation of several fundamental freedoms.”

On Tuesday, September 1, the association submitted an emergency summary appeal to ban the show.

An appeal rejected by order on Wednesday, September 2 by the summary judge of the Administrative Court of Paris having considered that "the only participation during this show of speakers who would organize surrogacy in foreign countries where it is legal cannot be regarded as constituting in itself a serious and manifestly illegal infringement of the fundamental freedoms invoked ”.

Faced with this decision, Jurists for Children announces in a Press release that it “appeals to the Council of State in order to request the cassation of this iniquitous decision”.
