Strasbourg, February 11 - Italy's bid to appeal a
ruling last summer striking down parts of its restrictive
reproductive law was rejected Monday by the European Court of
Human Rights, sources tell ANSA.
Italy had asked for a review of a judgement made by the
court last August.
In that judgement the court, based in Strasbourg, said
parts of Law 40 that forbid families from screening embryos for
ailments were too restrictive and violated the rights of an
Italian couple that wanted to screen for cystic fibrosis.
However, the remaining elements of the law still ban the
use of embryos for scientific research.
Last summer's ruling had been cheered by scientists and
supporters of the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process.
The four-year-old law had led to many infertile Italian
couples seeking treatment in fertility clinics abroad.
