Human Fertilisation and Embryology : the new law / Dewinder Birk

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is in excellent condition. The cover is in very good condition with little sign of wear apart from some fading on the back cover, especially on and near the spine. Internally the book is in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked - almost as new.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 represents the most radical overhaul of the United Kingdom's embryology laws since the enactment of the original 1990 Act. It is intended to ensure that the legislative framework keeps up with the fast pace of technological, social and medical change. The new Act is a comprehensive amending statute which makes considerable changes to the operation of both the HFEA 1990 and regulation in the area of assisted reproductive technology and embryo research. Major provisions contained in the Act include: extending regulation to the creation and use of all embryos outside of the human body, regardless of the processes used in their creation increasing the scope of legitimate embryo research activities, allowing hybrid embryos to be created for research into serious diseases enforcing a ban on sex selection of offspring for non-medical reasons retention of a duty, when providing fertility treatment, to take account of "the welfare of the child", but removal of the reference to 'the need for a father' recognising same-sex couples as legal parents of children conceived through the use of donated sperm, eggs or embryos.
