The French who lose their children in a natural abortion will be able to register them in the Civil Registry and enter them in the family book. The regulation is a protection for the 50,000 couples who lose a child by unwanted abortion each year. It is the legal status of the embryo.
Through two regulations published by the French Official State Gazette, families who are in these circumstances “will be able to have a symbolic mention of that child, with Christian name”.
Big French newspapers, as Le Figaro, have accepted that the right to enroll in the Civil Registry to stillbirths is to accept the fetus as a living being from the moment of conception.
