Comment: A case report describes a situation whereby the mother of a deceased male has gained permission to use the sperm in a surrogacy arrangement to produce a grandchild from the sons sperm.
Submission: This news story caught the eye of IVFDaily whereby a women, whose son had sperm cryopreserved prior to his death from a brain tumour, obtained permsission to access the sons frozen sperm and via ICSI and a surrogate egg donor was able to generate a child. In effect the child is the woman's grandchild. This case is a variation of the use of frozen sperm from a deceased male whereby the child(ren) that arose from its use was commission by the mother to procure for her a grandchild. The child will therefore be born without a mother or father but grandparents.// One can easily recognise the implication that a couple have a right to access IVF technology not to make children but grandchildren. While this is a once off situation, one has the sense that there may be other similar cases and clinics offering surrogacy arrangements may benefit in developing a set of rules to assist or hinder future requests. Also, clinics that freeze sperm of cancer patients may need to consider the declaration he needs to give for such use before he produces his samples.// Life just keeps on getting harder//
