Science evolves more rapidly than laws regulating their advances, so we will always face a discrepancy between possibilities offered by science and the current legal framework.
The absence of a Law on Assisted Reproduction in some countries generates insecurity, as patients require cutting-edge treatments and professionals don’t find arguments to not implement them although they are not legislated.
On the other hand, it is important that the drafting of new laws is correct avoiding confusions among professionals when applying techniques. Even when there is a legal norm to this regard, some points are sometimes drafted in a confusing manner leading to bad interpretations.
In some countries, the legal framework is very restrictive hindering scientific progress in the reproductive medicine field and making patients travel to other countries where techniques are applied normally. An adequate norm regulates this activity and allows scientific development.
We will consider the legal framework of Spain, Europe and other countries such as UAE, Brazil, USA and some South American countries
