Interesting case in Britain.
A couple have embryos created via IVF, they subsequently split up, she has had surgery for cancer and is unable to conceive any other way, he however refuses consent for her to carry any of the eggs to term.
the law states
“However, the European Court of Human Rights has considered that both partners have equal rights over the embryos once created. This ruling supports the HFEA Act which requires both parties to consent or in this instance, withdraw that consent.”
If he had fertilized the eggs the natural way he would have no choice, yet in this case he is in effect choosing abortion.
It will be interesting to see if he receives the same types of attacks that women who choose abortion do.
