1. July came the first changes in the bioteknologiloven in power. Finally to Norwegian women gain access to more information about their pregnancy and the child they carry.
Finally, to Norwegian , single women who want to get children alone travel abroad to get assisted fertilization. Finally... Just health and care services being ready to submit soon.
With the resolutions Parliament adopted 26. may will the Norwegian women gain access to better monitoring during pregnancy, and more information about the child they are carrying. In brief, the Storting has decided the following changes:All pregnant women over 35 years should now be offered the full package with fosterdiagnostikk. This rating is more in line with international practice, and better match when the risk of having children with kromosomvariasjon increases. From the middle of the 30-years increases this risk markedly.All pregnant women are offered an early ultrasound with additional examinations such in the first trimester. By any findings of this investigation, should the woman get access to NIPT, regardless of how old she is.It is allowed to perform NIPT for all women in the Uk, so that those who want to buy this test don't have to travel abroad to take it.
a parliamentary majority was particularly concerned of that NIPT should be allowed in Norway as quickly as possible. Reiserestriksjonene related to corona-the pandemic has made it difficult for women to get carried out these tests in the last few months.Finally, everyone can get a son Debate
Still, it is not possible to travel to Sweden without risk of coronasmitte, or without having to go into quarantine. Least for a couple of days ago I received an e-mail from a distressed pregnant woman who does not get taken NIPT test the way she would want.
Several actors stand ready to offer NIPT to the Norwegian women. The assumption is that the business is approved by the ministry of health, and that they can fulfill the law's demands for information and guidance.
objectionable that the ministry is not can quickly get in place a scheme that allows these actors may seek approval and get considered if they meet the requirements.
instead, the part of the decision sauset together with the study about how early ultrasound should be introduced in the public svangerskapsomsorgen.
We understand that professionals should be involved in the organization of the new svangerskapsomsorgen and that this takes some time. It was also the reason why we set a later start-up date for these decisions, and asked the government to incorporate the economic consequences for this in the budget for 2021.
To ensure Norwegian pregnant women access to NIPT at his own expense is another matter. Here could the ministry with the benefit to have got out your finger.
As the changes in the bioteknologiloven was a fact, black Kjell Britain Ropstad that he would not work for the changes should be introduced as soon as Parliament wants. We hope what we are seeing now is the first sign of trenering of Political will. Erna Solberg has previously set himself in the way of the Norwegian women's rights when she gave His right of veto in the bioteknologispørmål at Granavolden.
