Vatican Asks Costa Rica's To Explain Ban on In Vitro Fertilization

Costa Rica's Foreign Minister, Enrique Castillo, has been called to the carpet by the Vatican to explain why Costa Rica is outlawing in vitro fertilization. The meeting was with Monsignor Dominique Mamberti.

Chancellor Castillo told the press that the Vatican has been made fully aware of Costa Rica's position on the subject.

In 2000 Costa Rica's Constitutional Court banned in vitro fertilization (IVF) on the grounds that it threatened life

Now Costa Rica faces a legal process by the American Court of Human Rights in the case after the country's legislators could not pass a bill to allow IVF.
