[A comparison of reproductive rights in Europe: a right to reproduce?].

Abstract

This article discusses the meaning of reproductive rights, and European attitudes to this issue, from both the ethical and legal standpoints. There is a difference in the international nomenclature between "reproductive rights "and a "right to reproduce", which translates in medical practice into a right to fertility treatment. Major national differences are outlined, particularly between France and the UK. Finally, the new phenomenon of cross-border reproductive care, a direct consequence of different national interpretations of reproductive rights, is discussed.
