"A first draft of law 47.14 regarding the Medical Assisted Reproductive Techniques was submitted in February 2016 and adopted in July 2018 by the Moroccan parliament. The 47.14 draft law specified that married couples; where natural conception has proven unfeasible for at least one year, have the full right for the use of reproduction methods and techniques, if they formally consent for that. At the same time, the proposed law clearly specified that persons that are proven completely sterile are not covered by its dispositions and consequently cannot seek procreation services. Doing so, those that have curable medical problem or that have medical evidence that they have poor fertility can...more

The revised violence against women bill removed a provision from the original draft which clarified what evidence courts could consider in domestic violence cases. The original draft specified that courts could consider reports of psychologists, medical evidence, expert statements, photographs, audio and visual recordings, and the victim’s statements in hospital records.[16] Removing this provision is a step backwards.

Under the shiny headlines, a disappointing reality remains: while the law increases prison time and fines for certain acts of violence, such as when the violent person is a relative of the victim or if the victim has a disability, it does nothing to protect women, ensure that those in charge of women’s security execute their duties, or offer concrete services to victims of violence. Currently, the Moroccan criminal law does not allow the police to intervene in domestic disputes unless there is an imminent threat of death, a policy aptly described by the infamous catchphrase “is there blood?” Furthermore, prosecutors are incapable of investigating cases of assault and battery...more
