Church opposes proposed bill on regulation of reproductive technologies
Sunday, July 04, 2010 11:40:54 AM, Agencies
Kochi: Syro-Malabar Church Major Archbishop Varkey Cardinal Vithayathil has come out in the open against the proposed Bill on regulation of reproductive technologies.
Cardinal Vithayathil has expressed his opinion in the first issue of Laity Voice, the emagazine of the Laity Commission.
Referring to 'The Assisted Reproductive Technologies (Regulation) Bill 2010' to be introduced by the Union Government, the Cardinal warned the authorities to be careful about the serious repercussions that may follow the dangerous and unethical legislation. People's representatives and society should think about these issues while making the legislation.
"It is being said that the Bill is being brought to prevent the misuse of reproductive technologies and to make it ethical and safe. The Bill says about 15 percent of the couples don't have children and every couple has the right to have a child. The ethical aspects of reproduction are being ignored. It will change the meaning and definitions of relations like husband and wife and the concept of marriage," the article pointed out.
