This brand new title analyses the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and considers the wide-ranging legal, ethical, medical, moral and social arguments deployed in argument in Parliament in favour of and opposing controversial amendments to the 1990 Act.

The book will explore in detail the provisions of the 2008 Act focussing on a number of key areas including: - the removal of the need for a father provision - creation of saviour siblings - permitting the creation of human admixed embryos (embryos containing both human and animal material) - abortion law reform - analysis/consideration of the potential impact of the 2008 Act for the newly regulated areas of science.

As more people turn to assisted reproduction, the legal issues surrounding it have become increasingly complex. Beyond representing patients or clinics, numerous legal problems are arising from the technology's application. Disputes in divorce are the most common, but this technology impacts the law in other areas, including personal injury, insurance, criminal law, and estate planning. Drawing from multiple legal sources, this book presents complex information in a direct, balanced and fair manner. It includes glossary, sample forms and checklists, and bibliography.

In 2004, the Assisted Human Reproduction Act was passed by the Parliament of Canada. Fully in force by 2007, the act was intended to safeguard and promote the health, safety, dignity, and rights of Canadians. However, a 2010 Supreme Court of Canada decision ruled that key parts of the act were invalid. Regulating Creation is a collection of essays built around the 2010 ruling. Featuring contributions by Canadian and international scholars, it offers a variety of perspectives on the role of law in dealing with the legal, ethical, and policy issues surrounding changing reproductive technologies. In addition to the in-depth analysis of the Canadian case the volume reflects on how other countries, particularly the U.S., U.K. and New Zealand regulate these same issues. Combining a detailed discussion of legal approaches with an in-depth exploration of societal implications, Regulating Creation deftly navigates the obstacles of legal policy amidst the rapid current of reproductive technological innovation.

This major book - known as 'The Bourn Hall Textbook' - evolved from teaching courses held at this prestigious Clinic - one of the birthplaces of IVF and clinical reproductive medicine. The content is comprehensive: covering assessment of the infertile couple and both laboratory and clinical aspects of assisted reproductive technologies. The emphasis throughout is on the practical management of patients undergoing assisted conception treatment. The third edition is a complete update of the field including expanded sections on newer technologies such as GIFT and ICSI. The book is authored largely by current or previous members of the Bourne Hall staff, with additional material from leading international authorities.

The controversies in adoption have extended across a spectrum of policy and practice issues, and although the issues have become clear, resolution has not been achieved nor has consensus developed regarding a framework on which to improve the quality of adoption policy and practice. This book is the fourth in a series to use an ethics-based framework for analyzing and resolving these complex challenges in adoption while avoiding the divisiveness that has heretofore impeded their resolution. This book raises the question of whether assisted reproduction (including sperm donation, egg donation, and embryo transfer), which may result in a child who is not genetically related to one or both parents, creates a situation that is analogous to adoption. The book examines whether the knowledge acquired in the field of adoption should be applied in the area of assisted reproduction and whether issues in adoption, such as identity, access to background information, and search, are equally applicable in the context of reproductive technology. The chapters are: (1) "Infertility, Assisted Reproduction, and Adoption"; (2) "The Meaning of Parenthood in Assisted Reproduction and Adoption"; (3) "The Parties Served through Adoption and Assisted Reproduction"; (4) "Anonymity and Information Access"; (5) "Market Forces in Adoption and Assisted Reproduction"; (6) "Embryo Donation and Adoption"; and (7) "The Law of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction." The concluding chapter notes that the limited research in assisted reproduction has made it difficult to determine the relative risks and benefits of a number of aspects of current practice and that identifying the key issues can serve as a first step toward full discussion of the challenges faced by professionals in adoption and assisted reproduction.

Advances in the field of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) have been revolutionary. This book focuses on the use of ARTs in the context of families who seek to conceive a matching sibling donor as a source of tissue to treat an existing sick child. Such children have been referred to as 'saviour siblings'. Considering the legal and regulatory frameworks that impact on the accessibility of this technology in Australia and the UK, the work analyses the ethical and moral issues that arise from the use of the technology for this specific purpose. The author claims the only justification for limiting a family's reproductive liberty in this context is where the exercise of reproductive decision-making results in harm to others. It is argued that the harm principle is the underlying feature of legislative action in Western democratic society, and as such, this principle provides the grounds upon which a strong and persuasive argument is made for a less-restrictive regulatory approach in the context of 'saviour siblings'. The book will be of great relevance and interest to academics, researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the fields of law, ethics, philosophy, science and medicine.
