Abstract

The decision of Dame Butler-Sloss in the case of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust v Mr & Mrs A & Others1 has already achieved notoriety. The disturbing facts have received widespread media coverage and fuelled further legal and political debate surrounding the “reproductive revolution”. 2 This short paper assesses the context and potential implications of the recent decision and, in particular, the nature and meaning of parenthood and the family.
