Single in Poland? Your Embryos Could Be Given to Another Couple

November 25, 2019

(Australian Broadcasting Co) – Under Polish law, her embryos could one day be given to a married couple she has never met, without her permission. Because Barbara is separated from her husband, as a single woman, she is now treated as an “anonymous donor” under a law passed in Poland in 2015. “If the embryos are taken away from me physically, I know that after 20 years they will no longer be mine [they will be] taken away against my will,” Barbara says sadly.
