Abstract

The recent case of Evans v United Kingdom1 documents a personal tragedy for Natallie Evans and an unenviable moral dilemma for her former partner, Howard Johnston, but for lawyers and academic commentators the decisions of the courts in the case have also presented a rare opportunity to analyse the operation of human rights provisions in the arena of what were once called ‘new reproductive technologies’, and—as will be demonstrated here—to build on this analysis to reappraise wider debates about the rights and relationships surrounding reproduction.
