Woman Fights To Have Baby With Dead Husband’s Sperm
follow through: to complete something that you have planned or promised to do
In a groundbreaking legal case, a 62-year-old woman from Western Australia has been allowed to extract sperm from her deceased husband. This decision came after the tragic loss of their two adult children. The woman and her husband, who were married for 39 years, had talked about having a baby through a surrogate mother. Unfortunately, her husband, 61, died before they could follow through on their plan.
The court has said that the sperm can be taken, but because the husband has died, using it to make a baby is against the law. This unusual story raises many questions about where the boundary of personal freedom should lie. Even though the woman cannot use her husband’s sperm now, the government is looking at changing these laws.
