Still have sex after old age: Portugal reduces the compensation for gynecological surgery for women aged 50

Portugal recently decided to cut compensation for gynecological surgery for 50-year-old women, according to the Guardian . The resolution is sexist.

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the importance of judgment in the case of medical compensation for Portuguese Judges has been reduced by the age of women, a general assumption that women of 50 years of age are less important to women than men of all ages.

A 50-year-old Portuguese Lady Maria · Mores (Maria Morais), who has two children, claims that her medical negligence in 1995 in a Portuguese hospital for gynecological surgery prevented her from engaging in normal sexual activity. She was thus compensated for physical and mental anguish, but the hospital reduced the amount of compensation by about One-third in 2013.

The verdict came as the judge in Lisbon ruled that the court had sparked a wave of protests in Portugal as she entered old age and her sex life was no longer important to her. The European Court of Human Rights in France told Moraise that the Portuguese judge's resolution was biased and violated the right to respect private and family life. Thus, the European Court of Human Rights ordered Portugal to pay Moraise €3,250 (USD 3,790) for damages and 2,460 euros in sentencing costs.

The European Court noted that the Portuguese court's ruling "ignores the importance of gender to women's self-realization and women's physical and mental well-being".

The Lisbon court said the ruling was based on a general assumption that sex was not important for a 50-year-old woman and a mother of two children. The European Court of Justice believes that this statement shows the Portuguese judiciary's discrimination against women and the enjoyment of sexual prejudice. The Portuguese authorities did not respond immediately to the decision.

The Portuguese courts in 2008 and 2014 made two other decisions on complaints about two cases of male patients with medical incidents. In the case of a man who loses his sexual activity due to a medical accident, no longer having a normal sexual relationship affects their self-esteem, regardless of their age, or whether or not they have children, they bring a "great and strong mental shock".
