Paternity and Reproductive Technology

(p.79) Commentary No 15: October 2002
Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

Kenneth McK Norrie

Edinburgh University Press

Discusses two cases involving reproductive technologies and the awkward question of paternity in such circumstances. In Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust v A [2003] 1 FLR 1091 sperm from the wrong man was used to impregnate a married woman and the question became: who is the father. In Evans v Amicus Health Care Ltd [2005] Fam 1 a couple separated after embryos were created and the man withdrew his consent to them being used to bring about a pregnancy. Could the woman override that consent?

Keywords:   In vitro fertilisation, Sperm mix-up, Parenthood, Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990
