Woman Wins Appeal to Use Dead Daughter’s Eggs

June 30, 2016

(BBC) – A woman who wants to use her dead daughter’s frozen eggs to give birth to her own grandchild has won a Court of Appeal battle. The 60-year-old woman was appealing against the UK regulator’s refusal to allow her to take her only child’s eggs to a US clinic. Her daughter, who died in 2011, was said to have asked her mother to carry her babies. The mother lost a High Court case last year. She was subsequently granted permission to challenge the decision at the Court of Appeal in London, before a panel of three judges.
