‘Regulating Emerging Reproductive Technologies: Uterus Transplantation and the Right to Gestate’, 6 March 2019

Dr Amel Alghrani, University of Liverpool

On 6 March 2019, the Medico-Legal Cluster were delighted to welcome Dr Amel Alghrani, who spoke on uterus transplants and the right to gestate. The event sparked very interesting debate about new developments in assisted reproduction and was attended by both students and staff.

Abstract

As emerging reproductive technologies such as uterus transplantation promise more avenues in which individuals can actualize their procreative rights, and in light of the UK courts acknowledgment in Re G (Children) [2014] that ‘…families are formed in different ways these days and the law must attempt to keep up and to respond to developments…’ this talk examines whether under notions of procreative liberty, it can be claimed there a right to gestate. If such a right does exist, is it confined to cisgendered women or can transgender, non-binary and other gender plural individuals also assert the same right?
