The aim of this contribution is to praise the book by Mori and Flamigni in which the authors reconstruct the long story of the approval of the Law n. 40/2004 on artificial reproduction. Their merit consists in showing how this law did not respond to the ideal of neutrality and secularity: on the contrary, it was formulated according to specific moral value with disregard for interests of several groups of people (as gay people, single women, couple at risk of transmitting genetic diseases). The defenders of the law claimed the clause of conscientious objection as a tool to disobey the law against people in need of the techniques of artificial reproduction. A new law must be formulated in order to ensure that all rights and interests at stake are equally protected.

Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to praise the book by Mori and Flamigni in which the authors reconstruct the long story of the approval of the Law n. 40/2004 on artificial reproduction. Their merit consists in showing how this law did not respond to the ideal of neutrality and secularity: on the contrary, it was formulated according to specific moral value with disregard for interests of several groups of people (as gay people, single women, couple at risk of transmitting genetic diseases). The defenders of the law claimed the clause of conscientious objection as a tool to disobey the law against people in need of the techniques of artificial reproduction. A new law must be formulated in order to ensure that all rights and interests at stake are equally protected.
