Italy court overturns ban on egg or sperm donation

Italy’s constitutional court has struck down a ban on egg or sperm donation for infertile couples. Great news for couples struggling with their fertility who need an egg or sperm donor to help them create their family! As The Washington Post states:

Wednesday’s ruling was a victory for couples challenging the ban on medically-assisted egg or sperm donation that is part of a 2004 law regulating procreation.

Couples and individuals have had to travel from Italy to other countries, such as the United States or Spain, for their egg or sperm donation. Now the next step is for the government to come up with guidelines.
