The author lists the most important violations of the rights of both women and men perpetrated by the Italian law governing artificial insemination, from the right to health and the right to privacy to the right to freedom of research, doctors’ right to independence of action vis-à-vis medical malpractice and, last but not least, the individual’s right to procreate, before concluding by remarking that the law consti-tutes an assault on the principle of the secular state and takes the form of a political act whose significance is symbolic, as in effect its function is to stop people having recourse to the techniques of assisted insemination while on the surface purporting to regulate its practice.
