Policing Procreation: Prisoners, Artificial Insemination and the Law
Genomics, Society and Policy 2006 May; 2(1): 110-117
This article explores the implications of two recent case law decisions in the UK in which prisoners and their partners have sought to utilise the European Convention of Human Rights to challenge the refusal by the Prison Service to provide access to facilities for artificial insemination. After a discussion of the facts and legal principles arising from these cases, the author goes on to consider broader questions of the rights of prisoners? partners; the contested role of the welfare principle, and the challenges posed by recent research which promotes decisional privacy and autonomy in reproductive decisionmaking.
