Radio: The Law and the Unborn

Unreliable Evidence, BBC Radio 4

“Clive Anderson presents the series analysing the legal issues of the day.

Developments in human reproductive technologies give rise to a range of legal and ethical controversies around fertilization, cloning, surrogacy and abortion. The new Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act makes legal the creation of ‘saviour siblings’ and hybrid animal-human embryos for scientific research. Does the law provide enough protection for the unborn? Clive considers who decides what can be done to an embryo and when, in law, life begins.”

Emily Jackson is one of the experts interviewed.

Available to listen indefinitely.
