Rose v. Secretary of State for Health and Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority
Family Law Reports 2002; 2: 962-980
Court Decision:  2 Family Law Reports 962; 2002 July 26 (date of decision). The Queen's Bench Division held that the Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights included the right of an individual to know details about his or her identity, including information about biological parents. Two persons, one an adult and the other a child, born through artificial insemination from anonymous donors brought suit against the Secretary of State challenging his failure to promulgate regulations facilitating the distribution of information about sperm donors to persons born using that sperm. The court held that the persons had a right to information concerning their origins, but did not decide whether the Secretary of State had violated these rights. [KIE/ECL]
