The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act of 1990 and Assessment for Parenthood: In Whose Best Interests?
Ryburn, Murray; Fleming, Annette
Early Child Development and Care, v91 p65-75 1993
Britain's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act provides for the assessment of adults for parenthood on both medical and social grounds, justified by concern for the welfare of the child. Compares these assessments with those undertaken in the adoption process and questions the utility of such decisions for the welfare of the children involved. (MDM)
