Much is being said, and will be said, about the current IVF Bill being proposed. From the very outset of assisted fertilisation, two simple sacrosanct rights should always be maintained.
These are the principle of being pro-life and the principle of protecting the rights of the child – born or unborn.
Pro-life points to a mentality that seeks to create life and not destroy it. The rights of the child include primarily the right to know his identity and also to be given an upbringing by a parent/parents who strive to give the child what is best.
Any decision affecting reproduction/fertilisation needs to respect these two principles to the full.
