Introduction Every year ~800,000 people die by suicide worldwide. The pathway to suicide is mediated by highly complex processes, integrating a large number of risk factor variables which are extensively dependent on one another. Unfortunately, suicide risk prediction has been a challenging problem for epidemiological studies and their application...

Infertile couples often engage overseas surrogates, which increases the risk for legal and ethical complications. This book provides clinical guidance on the provision of gestational surrogacy on a worldwide basis, with brief summaries of the legal po...
Conference Paper
This paper outlines the method(s) developed to create ‘biographies’ of pivotal health care law test cases, in order to explore their provenance and impact, and reflects on the implications of what emerges from this biographical approach for understanding the role of judicial rulings in the development of the law. Three leading health care law case...
Article
Judges articulate their role in controversial cases of medical ethics in terms of deference to Parliament, lest their personal morality be improperly brought to bear. This hides a wide range of law-making activities, as parliamentary sovereignty is diffused by ‘intermediate law-makers’, and judicial activity is more subtle than the deference accoun...
Chapter
In this chapter we examine the conceptualization of vulnerability in particular health care situations and consider how useful it is in a regulatory context. Vulnerability, and potential exploitation, are often used as justifications for the imposition of legal restrictions to protect the rights of those thought to be susceptible to harm. We will u...
Conference Paper
This paper considers how clashes of social values in litigation over NHS funding decisions manifest themselves in the ‘biography’ of a case. It argues that the issues in AC v Berkshire West PCT [2010] EWHC 1162 (Admin) and (on appeal) [2011] EWCA Civ 247 can be seen in terms of two competing narratives; one about discrimination and transgender indi...

Mitochondrial donation poses the latest regulatory challenge for policy-makers in the context of assisted conception. Since 2010 the Human Genetics Commission, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the Nuffield Council on Bioethics have all considered the policy implications of permitting use of these techniques in treatment. The Nuf...

Article
Full-text available
This comment considers the proposals to disband the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) under the auspices of the Government's review of Arm's-Length Bodies in the NHS. The comment highlights some of the difficulties this might raise in relation to the Register of Information held by the HFEA, and urges the need for greater consider...
Chapter
Initial analysis of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 (the 2008 Act), amending the 1990 Act of the same name, points towards the central role of consent provisions in both the construction of legal parenthood and in relation to gaining access to further information about one’s genetic origins. This approach arguably lends support to t...
Article
In 1984, among its recommendations for the regulation of assisted conception services in the UK, the Warnock Committee proposed that the birth certificate of a donor-conceived person should record the fact of donor conception. While this proposal was never implemented, over twenty years later, a Joint Committee of the House of Lords and House of Co...
Chapter
This chapter analyses the routes by which Parliamentary bodies move from consultation to formulating public policy in the controversial field of assisted conception and related technological developments. It explores the findings of the Department of Health consultation, focusing not only on the official interpretation of the data, but to alternati...

The consultation considers a range of issues, including the model and scope of regulation and proposals for a sing...
Article
Under current legal regulations, when undertaking donor insemination at British clinics, women are able to ‘choose’ particular characteristics of donors. It is also permissible to reserve sperm from a particular donor for future use. These provisions have traditionally been associated with facilitating heterosexual couples to ‘pass’ as ‘the family’...
