Costa Rica’s IVF ban challenged

Costa Rica’s IVF ban challenged
Costa
Rica is being sued for failing to lift its ban on IVF, as it remains the only
country in the Western Hemisphere that prohibits the procedure. The
Inter-American Commission on Human Rights said it will take Costa Rica to the
Inter-American Court of Human Rights for not legalising IVF after the
commission extended its previous deadline twice for the country to do so. IVF
was banned in Costa Rica in 2000. Some couples have taken their cases to the
Inter-American Court, based in Washington. ~ AFP, Aug 3
