In France, only heterosexual couples are eligible for artificial insemination, but President Macron wants to change that. A bill to extend the right to ‘procréation médicalement assistée’ (PMA) or medically assisted procreation to single women and lesbian couples has been proposed, but a conservative minority is opposing it.
On 6 October, about 75,000 conservatives gathered in Paris to protest against the extension of the PMA-bill, and played Stromae’s song ‘Papaoutai’ to introduce a speaker.
However, Stromae is offended by the deliberate misinterpretation of the meaning of the song. Additionally, Stromae was not asked for permission to use his song, despite it being mandatory under copyright law, which is why he wants to file a complaint, reports Bruzz.
