Journalist Alexandre Hébert, present on the set of 23 hours, Tuesday, August 2, explains that hospitals are crumbling under demand: “The authorities and the doctors expected there to be a lot of requests, but not to this extent. In the first half of 2022, 11,926 files were submitted for an initial consultation.

On the files submitted, “4862 turned into a first date. We are in a single semester well above the government’s forecasts for the entire year, since it was counting on 2,000 to 3,000 new requests. Results : the times for access to a PMA are always longer, 14.8 months on average to benefit from it today, compared to around 12 months at the time of the law”explains the journalist. Single women represent 53% of people seeking assisted reproduction.
