dc.description.abstractFour areas of potential legal difficulty generated by Britain's Warnock report are identified. Supervision of the operations that would be authorized by a licensing authority is problematic because of the lack of qualified individuals and their questionable ability to oversee specific research. Since surrogate arrangements would be considered illegal contracts unenforceable in the courts, a couple would be unable to sue a carrying mother for breach of contract if she refused to hand over the child. The author questions who would be considered the mother if the commissioning woman had supplied the egg. The assumption that all research on embryos is experimental is questioned. Whether mere observation can be classed as research may have some bearing on the 14-day limit applied to such research. The effect on a person of being informed at majority of his or her origin through IVF or AID, as recommended, has yet to be determined. (KIE abstract)en
