Key laws and policies

Foundational values

The right to life from the moment of conception is recognized by Article 49, Par. 1, of the Constitution, and may influence practices.

Prohibited practices

The Constitution prohibits research on human embryos, thus implicitly banning cloning.

Permitted and regulated practices

No laws or guidelines address assisted reproduction.

Donor eggs are, in practice, used for women over 40 with fertility problems.
