A Right to a Child of One’s Own? The Legal Justification in Limiting Access to Assisted Reproductive Treatment
MetadataShow full item record
The revolution in IVF treatment in recent years has resulted in the conception of over 4 million babies worldwide prompting stricter legal regulation and control of medical practice. This article explores the demand and availability for IVF, and how international and domestic legislation operates and applies in relation to the notion of ‘a right to a child.’ It considers whether there is, or should be, an established right to such treatment and the extent to which interferences by the state to prohibit or limit assisted reproductive treatments are legitimately justified.
