Examines the Family Division ruling in Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust v A on whether the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 s.28 applied when deciding the paternity of children born following in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment in which the wrong sperm had been used. Discusses whether a claim could be brought for wrongful conception or wrongful birth.
