Gómez Murillo et al. v. Costa Rica

Like the Artavia Murillo et al. v. Costa Rica case, this case is about Costa Rica’s ban of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF). In Artavia Murillo, the Court had found the ban a violation of the America Convention. Since Costa Rica was delaying lifting it, couples who wanted to have access to this infertility treatment brought a second set of petitions to the Commission. The State lifted the ban before the Court could rule on the merits and the parties reached a friendly settlement.
