I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!

In Vitro Fertilization Ban in Costa Rica

This MEGA TICKS ME OFF - as isn't this just another way the catholic church is putting their 2 cents into the government (more reason churches throughout the world should pay taxes.  I just don't get how a group that isn't contributing $$ can influence $$ decisions or ANYTHING!!!  [this issue is NOT just a Costa Rica issue!!  This is a problem throughout the world!!]).  This IS a Human Rights issue and probably more negative marks against Costa Rica on some study.  It's out and out BEYOND CRUEL that people that can't "naturally" have children can not use this method that is used THROUGHOUT the world!!

OmbudsWoman to ask for lift on In Vitro Fertilization Ban
Tuesday, August 28, 2012

NOTE:  Costa Rica banned In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedures 12 years ago.

The Ombudsman’s Office will ask the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to order Costa Rica to lift its ban on in vitro fertilization (IVF) and to adopt legislation regulating the procedure.

The office will present its position during a trial set to start on Sept. 5 against the Costa Rican government for banning the practice 12 years ago, after a ruling from the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court.

Ombudswoman Ofelia Taitelbaum said a court ruling on the Costa Rican case will be issued later this year.

In 2010, the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights ruled that Costa Rica’s ban on IVF violents Articles 11.2, 17.2 and 24 of the Human Rights Convention and recommended the country to create consistent rules for granting access to the procedure.
