This article refers to the new forms of maternity according to the newly enacted Law 3089/2002 titled: “Medical Support to the Human Reproduction”. The introduction of this Law was necessary in view of the current developments of the genetic support in accordance with the Greek public order. However, its introduction has resulted in the disagreement and debate among jurists regarding its effective application in a legal and social context. The article critically examines the terms and institutions of human reproduction, the new institution of post mortem artificial fertilization, as well as the role of surrogate mother and the right to privacy and anonymity of the third person, which provides the genetic material.
