Government launches consultation on egg, sperm & embryo storage limits – Article published in Bionews

Natalie has written a comment piece for this week’s Bionews in support of law reform for egg, sperm and embryo storage limits.

The government is, until 5 May 2020, consulting on whether the UK’s laws on embryo and gamete storage should be reviewed. The current law sets limits on how long fertility patients can store their genetic material for at UK fertility clinics, with a basic storage period of ten years which can only be extended in a narrow range of circumstances. The existing rules and complex and often unfair, and at NGA Law we think they should be replaced with a more humane system founded in patient choice.
