Senior Judge Criticises ‘Insensitive’ Handling of IVF Case

April 7, 2016

(BBC) – A senior judge has strongly criticised an IVF clinic in London over errors with paperwork for a lesbian couple. One of the women gave birth to twins after the treatment. But her partner, who was the biological mother, had to go to court to be declared a legal parent – because the wrong forms were filled in at the clinic. The case is among 15 similar ones brought to the High Court.
