Beth Warren’s husband, 32-year-old Warren Brewer, a ski instructor, died away before 2 years as brain tumor. Before he started his cancer treatment, he had kept his sperm frozen. The signed document says, after his death, his wife is allowed to use the sperm.
The regulation tolerates sperm and eggs to be stored for up to 55 years, if assent is often renewed.
But after he died of a brain tumor in February 2012, assent couldn’t be renewed. The regulators, the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, said the sperm could not be stored beyond April 2015.The couple had lived 8 years together and married 6 weeks before his death.
After the tribunal, Mrs. Justice Hogg lined that it was “right and proper, and proportionate” to allow the sperm to be kept until at least April 2023.
