Uncharted Europe episode #2 – Access to assisted reproduction in Europe
Every year, thousands of people in Europe have access to assisted reproductive technologies (ART). These are used to treat infertility problems in heterosexual couples or to enable same-sex couples or single women to have children. There are countries in Europe where babies born with these techniques are between 5 and 8 percent of the total.
Each European country has its own rules to regulate access to those treatments, involving age limits and the number of attempts covered by the public healthcare system. In some cases, the rules in place lead to discrimination that hits mainly LGBT couples and single women. All this often forces people to travel abroad to avoid such limitations.
In episode #2 of Uncharted Europe we talk about our investigation that tackled these very issues with the journalists that conducted it: Ángela Bernardo and Maria Álvarez del Vayo from Civio 🇪🇸 and Adrian Burtin from Voxeurop 🇫🇷.
