Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill — Fertility treatment requires male role model — rejected — 20 May 2008 at 18:30

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a father or male role model to be part of what the law interprets as "supporting parenting" for a child who is born as a result of fertility treatment.

The current text in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 says:[1]

  • A woman shall not be provided with treatment services unless account has been taken of the welfare of any child who may be born as a result of the treatment (including the need of that child for a father), and of any other child who may be affected by the birth.

The new Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill under discussion will substitute "a father" for "supportive parenting".[2]

The vote, which was lost, would have instead changed "a father" to "supportive parenting and a father or male role model".[3]

A previous vote to change "a father" to "a father and a mother" instead of "supportive parenting" was also lost.[4]
