ESHRE congratulates Lithuania on new ART legislation
Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite’s veto of restrictive regulations in reproductive medicine was supported by the Lithuanian Parliament on Saturday 10th September 2016. The vote also introduced a new ART legislation, which opens the access to fertility treatment for Lithuanian families.
ESHRE had formally expressed its support to Lithuanian medical specialists and to the President in her veto. As proposed, the changes to Lithuania's regulation of IVF and other fertility treatments would have applied restrictions likely to limit access to treatments and even jeopardised patient safety. The new legislation passed along with the veto now allows state-funded IVF, the freezing of embryos, PGD for the identification and prevention of genetic defects in the embryos of at-risk couples and gamete donation.
