"We agree that the request for in vitro fertilization to be refunded is legitimate," Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Nov. 26. "The procedure should be governed by regulations. It should be legal and thus available to those who have no other way to resolve the effects of infertility." Tusk added he would immediately ask Health Minister Ewa Kopacz to estimate the cost of the refunds.

Tusk also said the government agreed that Poland needs to ratify the Bioethics Convention of the Council of Europe as soon as possible. "We shall seek legislative ways to assure maximum safety of embryos to prevent activity which we consider detrimental, if not pathological," he said. "We will thus protect the safety of embryos and parents." He announced the publication of a report prepared by a bioethics task force of lawyers, physicians, biologists, philosophers and ethicists, headed by Jarosław Gowin, a deputy of the Civic Platform (PO), which is handling the preparations for the Bioethics Convention ratification and working on the guidelines of a bill to regulate issues of in vitro fertilization. Tusk predicts the Council of Europe Bioethics Convention will be ratified in the first half of 2009, while the in vitro bill will be submitted to the lower house of parliament next month.
