Prime Minister responds to our clients’ embryo appeal

January 5, 2010

Back in October, our clients Melanie and Robert Gladwin succeeded in winning a last minute change to the law on embryo storage, allowing them (and other prospective parents like them) to keep their precious frozen embryos. Their campaign included a petition presented at 10 Downing Street, and the Prime Minister’s office has now formally responded, explaining the action taken to change the law and saying that “the Government recognised that [the law] could prevent these couples from having a much-wanted genetically related child“. You can read the response on the official site of the Prime Minister’s office.

For more information on the Gladwin’s story and campaign, read our blog entry ‘Government bows to pressure on embryo storage rules’.
