Man wins right to be a single dad through surrogacy – Metro

Posted: at 4:46 pm

The man argued that laws around surrogacy arrangements discriminated against single people (Picture: Getty) A man has won the right to be a single dad through surrogacy. The single man who fathered a child via a surrogate mother had last year arguedthat laws around surrogacy arrangements discriminated against single people. He claimed the wording of part of the 2008 Fertilisation and Embryology Act meant only a couple could apply to become a childs legal parents. Sir James Munby, the most senior family court judge in England and Wales, agreed with him. The judge, President of the Family Division of the High Court, made a declaration of incompatibility after analysing the case at a hearing on London. Following this, another judge has said ministers are now actively considering a change to address the incompatibility. Mr Justice Keehan, who is also based in the Family Division of the High Court, has outlined Government plans in a ruling on a similar case. He said in the hearing in Birmingham a single woman wanted to become a childs legal parent following an arrangement with a surrogate mother. The judge said the woman had been in a relationship with a man when the surrogacy arrangement … Continue reading

Fast-tracking international surrogacy: reforming the law for parental orders – Lexology (registration)

Posted: at 1:45 pm

The legal procedure for obtaining a parental order in England and Wales is complicated. It can be both confusing and expensive for applicants. In Re Z (Foreign Surrogacy: Allocation of Work: Guidance on Parental Order Reports) [2015] EWFC 90 Russell J said that international surrogacy cases invariably involve some legal complexity. As a result, all proceedings under section 54 of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 (s54 HFEA 2008) where the child was born outside of England and Wales are allocated to a High Court judge. At the moment, applications for parental orders in international cases involve two hearings. The first is a directions hearing at which the judge timetables the filing of evidence, directs a parental order report and lists a final hearing. The second is the final hearing at which the order is made, usually without complication. However, as surrogacy has increased in popularity, so has the number of relatively straightforward cases and the need for reform is clear. Not all international cases involve legal complexity, yet the stringent rules and processes continue to apply. In these cases, it would seem eminently sensible if the two hearings could be condensed to one. This happened in a recent … Continue reading

Scots man fathers twins 27 years after freezing sperm – The Scotsman

Posted: at 3:41 pm

A man has fathered twins using sperm frozen almost 27 years earlier and earned himself a world record. He now holds the Guinness World Record for the oldest sperm ever successfully used for in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The father, a musician from Glasgow who holds the record anonymously, said he had a message for other cancer patients. People going through chemotherapy should keep hope, he said. When we finally saw on a scan we were having twins I was in shock. I kept looking for a third heartbeat, thinking we might even be having triplets. He had his sperm frozen when he was diagnosed with cancer aged 21, and became a father to twins when he was 47. Doctors told him chemotherapy treatment would make him infertile so his sperm was frozen for 26 years and 243 days. When he met his partner he had to explain that she would need IVF if they were to have children. The couple, who live in Glasgow, did not use the sperm until 2010, when he was 47 and she was 37. She became pregnant with twins and the boy and girl were born in 2011. The father said he knew he held … Continue reading

Central Heights student shines in show ring – The Ottawa Herald

Posted: at 3:41 pm

By The Herald Staff COFFEYVILLE Showing livestock comes naturally for a Central Heights High School freshman. Cheyenne Higbie added to her list of achievements by taking the reserve grand champion junior heifer title Wednesday at the 2017 Inter-State Fairs junior heifer show in Coffeyville, according to a news release. Higbie, 14, showed her Simmental heifer, named Black Ice, who also won champion Simmental, the release said. Black Ice, who was born in February 2016, weighs about 1,300 pounds and was aptly named because when she was born, she had this style to her, Higbie said. She was always black, never had a tint of brown, and she was smooth like ice. Higbie said Black Ice has a unique personality as the heifer will attempt to eat human food and drink her Gatorade. Shes very smart, and sometimes she thinks shes a person, Higbie said. Black Ice also loves to take off her halter, Higbie said. She gets loose and will be in the barn, but she wont go anywhere, Higbie said. Higbie learned the heifer needs a neck rope. She said with the neck rope on, Black Ice doesnt try to remove her halter. The Higbie family moved from Coffeyville … Continue reading

Did the Prophet Muhammad Plagiarise Ancient Greek …

Posted: August 14, 2017 at 3:49 am

[Dowload PDF from here] Pre-release version 0.5 February 2011 Commentators assert that the quranic view on human development was plagiarised from ancient Greek (Hellenic) embryology. They specifically claim that the Prophet Muhammad plagiarised the works of the ancient Greek philosopher and polymath Aristotle, and the 2nd century physician and philosopher Galen. To respond to this accusation, this section will articulate the mainstream Islamic scholarly position that the Prophet did not plagiarise or borrow ideas from Hellenic medicine. Does similarity imply plagiarism? To address the contention that the Prophet Muhammad borrowed or plagiarised Hellenic views on embryology, the philosophical implications of inferring plagiarism from similarity must be discussed. If there is a similarity between two things X and Y, to make the inference that X copied Y or Y copied X would require some form of evidence. Otherwise, the argument will be fallacious as it will commit the fallacy of argumentum ad ignoratiam, in other words, arguing from ignorance. Take the following example into consideration: there are two patent applications that have arrived at the patent office in the UK. The patent officer examines both applications and they appear to have a similar design for a particular product. Can the patent … Continue reading
