    In Turkey, as in many other countries, infertility is generally regarded as a negative phenomenon in a woman’s life and is associated with a lot of stigma by society. In other words, female infertility and having a baby using Assisted Reproductive Technologies have to be taken into consideration with respect to gender, motherhood, social factors, religion and law.

    Statutory Disclosure in Article 280 of the Turkish Penal Code.Erhan Büken, Serap Sahinoğlu & Nüket Örnek Büken - 2006 - Nursing Ethics 13 (6):573-580.

It provides for up to one year of imprisonment for a health care worker who, while on duty, finds an indication that a crime might have been committed by a patient and who does not inform the responsible authorities (...)
