“The measure to introduce fees to IVF treatment will result in discrimination between the have and who have not. Through this measure the government is pushing forward the neoliberal agenda by introducing fees in the health sector, thus undermining social justice. Public Health service should remain free”, stated the Communist Party of Malta.
“Parliament should also introduce amendments to the approved bill to take in consideration the actual needs of the people, plus the fact that this bill is too conservative”.
The Communist Party of Malta insists that IVF treatment should be available to all women irrespective of their social status. This will lead to more gender equality as males could also be single parents through an altruistic surrogate mother. Gay couples should also be eligible to IVF.
