Fertility and the law


Most of you (61%) acknowledge that laws should regulate assisted conception. In the UK, the HFEA, (the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority) enforces the law on a range of issues from embryo testing to donor anonymity, and regulates safety and quality standards.

Strict legal regulation is necessary in order to set out who the parents are of a child, but often legalities can be as much of a hindrance as they are a help.

The UK’s leading fertility lawyer Natalie Gamble says that ‘the law makes special rules for families created through fertility treatment’ but she also notes how sometimes laws put in place with good intentions can have the ‘wrong outcome’.
