This contribution aims at analysing and presenting a comparative dimension concerning the issues raised for the upcoming French Bioethics law revision in the field of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) : access of female same-sex couples and single women to ART ; the authorization of post-mortem procreation ; enlarging eligibility criteria for oocyte self-conservation ; and lifting the anonymity of gamete donation. These questions touch at the very heart of the French bioethics model conceived in 1994, and their revision would constitute a conceptual upheaval.
