In the "Y.Y." judgment of 10 March 2015, the European Court of Human Rights held unanimously that the refusal by the Turkish authorities to grant authorization for gender reassignment surgery on the grounds that the person requesting it, a transsexual, was not permanently unable to procreate had breached the applicant's right to respect for his private life. The Court thus found that there had been a violation of Article 8 ECHR.
