“I can argue for hours with Senaldi and with Minister Roccella about whether or not we like rainbow families, but that’s not the point, the point is that these children exist and we as a state must protect them”: Chiara Appendinoformer mayor of Turin, was a guest of David Parenzo and Concita De Gregorio a On air on A7. Speaking on the issue of same-parent families, the grillina said: “It is not true that surrogacy is being introduced with this European regulation, it has nothing to do with it. What does this regulation want to do? It gives these boys and girls access to rights that today they don’t have”.
At that point Appendino gave the example of limitations, for example, for those who pick up the children from school. “But what he says? – the co-director of Free Pietro Senaldi – it’s not like that… So the babysitter can’t go and get the children from school?”. “But do you know how much the adoption procedure costs? How much stress…”, asked the former mayor of Turin. And Senaldi replied: “Less than the rented uterus”. But the pentastellata went on saying: “Those who listen to us from home understand that there is a problem of ideology”.
