PRINCIPLES OF Artificial Reproduction Technologies (ART) IN SERBIAN LAWS
Artificial reproduction technologies (ART) are regulated in Serbia by the Act on Treatment of Infertility with Biomedically Assisted Fertilization Procedures and by the Family Act. The Act on Infertility Treatment by Bio-Medically Assisted Fertilization contains principles on which ART are based. The first principle is the principle of medical justification. The principle of medical justification of BMAF implies the application of the BMAF procedure for infertility treatment in cases when other methods of infertility treatment are not possible or indicate a significantly lower chance of success, providing that the procedure is not an unacceptable risk to the health, life and safety of a mother or a child. It is stipulated that spouses or common-law partners are entitled to BMAF procedure in situations when other medical procedures for infertility treatment are impossible or when contemporary standards of medical science and practice indicate that the conception and birth of the child cannot be achieved by sexual intercourse. As an exception, the spouses or common-law partners are entitled to BMAF procedure in case when this kind of conception can prevent the transmission of a serious genetic disease to the child. According to Serbian law, ART can be used only as a method of treating infertility; the implementation of ART is not allowed in cases which are not medically justified. Subsequently, ART is, for instance, not a solution for a woman without a partner and who, for this reason, wants AID (artificial insemination by donor) procedure to be performed.
The Act on Treatment of Infertility with Biomedically Assisted Fertilization Procedures gives priority to the interest of the child to have both parents. Serbian Act, as an exception, allows the woman without a partner access to ART, but only if justified reasons are provided. Which reasons can be considered as exceptionally justified is left to two ministers to decide (Minister for Health and Minister for Family Affairs). Medically justified reasons should normally exist. Thus, the fact that a woman does not have a partner or that she is a lesbian should not be considered as justified. The second principle is the principle of human being protection. This principle implies that the BMAF procedure can be implemented to protect the human being individuality and the integrity of the embryo or fetus. The third principle is the principle of public interests. The principle of public interests is achieved by performing BMAF procedure for the benefit of the person, the family or the whole society, including the BMAF research, and providing the application of appropriate measures to protect human health, safety, dignity, fairness and basic human rights. The forth principle is the principle related to the protection of the rights of children and persons involved in BMAF. It is achieved by giving the priority in decision-making about BMAF to the health, welfare and protection of the child’s rights and rights of other persons in BMAF procedure, particularly to a woman undergoing a BMAF and the child to be born under the procedure. The fifth principle is the principle of equality. This principle is achieved by providing equal opportunities for both men and women in the treatment of infertility by BMAF procedure. The sixth principle is the principle of free decision- making. This principle is achieved by guaranteeing the right to free decision-making and by providing a free consent of all individuals subjected to the BMAF infertility treatment. According to Serbian Act, the consent has to be provided for each BMAF procedure and may be withdrawn in writing until the sperm, unfertilized eggs or early embryos are implemented into the woman’s body. If the consent is withdrawn, the BMAF procedure has to be suspended. Prior to inserting sperm, unfertilized eggs or early embryos, the responsible physician should confirm the existence of consent or its withdrawal.
Serbian Law envisages that a child can get information about the medical conditions of the donor, only in case of the presence of medically justified reasons.
The ban for payment for reproductive cells is also envisaged in the Serbian law on Treating Infertility by Applying Biomedical Assisted Fertilization.
This law brought new national organization Directorate for Biomedicine which has to have the highest authority together with Ministry of Health. Directorate of biomedicine makes decisions on approval for the procedure of assisted reproduction with donated reproductive cells.
According to Serbian Law, if the donor have been given written consent before death, after his death productive cells can be used in ART. That means before every ART procedures, medical workers are obligated to verify whether donor is alive or not. Performing the ART requires the written consent of all persons undergo the ART procedure and may be revoked in writing until the seminal cells, unfertilized eggs or early embryos do not enter the woman's body.
Serbian legislator predicts PGD only in case of risk of transmitting genetic diseases, chromosomal and genetic diagnostics disease or if they are necessary for the success of the procedure ART.
