Scrapping the HFEA is a mistake

We think that the government’s recent decision to scrap the HFEA is a big mistake, aimed only at short term cost savings. The HFEA has led the world in fertility sector best practice since its inauguration in August 1991 and it is a highly regarded guardian of our world leading fertility treatment and embryo research. We work with leading fertility lawyers around the world and have listened to their struggles in regulating fertility best practice and their envy of our specialist watchdog. The HFEA is a long established institution providing a much needed point of reference and a source of public information on assisted reproduction generally and its loss will be great at a time when more people than ever before are turning to third party reproduction as a means of building their family and badly need guidance.
