The COMECE Working Group on Ethics in Research and Medicine has published an “Opinion on Gestational Surrogacy: the question of European and International Rules”.
The European Commission decided on 28 May not to submit any legislative proposal as a reply to the European Citizens Initiative 'One of Us'.
The success of the recent citizens initiative “One of Us” finally ought to convince the EU Parliament to end the financing of research activities which presuppose the destruction of human embryos.
COMECE recalls that the EU has no competence in regard to this matter. EU citizens should not be misled.
