80 per cent of couples refuse to give up spare embryos for adoption
More than 80 per cent of couples refuse to give up spare embryos for adoption after in vitro fertilisation, says an international study.
The studies were mentioned in a paper by the Malta College of Pathologists, which warned that the IVF Bill warranted further discussion by stakeholders.
The proposed law has raised eyebrows, as it would allow couples interested in IVF to give their consent to embryo adoption. Same-sex couples would rather opt for a genetically related embryo than accept adopting frozen embryos, the college said.
