A Request for Medically Assisted Reproduction
This chapter analyzes the case of Mr and Mrs F who have been married for ten years and have no children. They have ruled out the choice of adoption, and are considering resort to an artificial insemination donor. However, they worry about the right of the child to have a ‘natural’ father (that is, the wife's husband), or not to know its biological father. They ask Dr R for advice and possible assistance in arranging artificial insemination by donor. It discusses what Dr R should advise and assist, in light of relevant medical, ethical, legal, and human rights considerations.
