Divorcee can use ex’s embryos: Argentina ruling


A judicial ruling in Argentina said last week that a woman can use frozen embryos fertilised with her ex-husband’s sperm to get pregnant again. The man argued that he should not be forced into biological fatherhood with his ex-wife. However, the court’s two female judges say life begins at conception, so he had already approved it by donating sperm. Argentina does not regulate artificial insemination, but the ruling published last week should not prevent the woman from using the embryos. ~ AP, Sep 23
