In her lecture, Baroness Deech will look at the ethics and the law surrounding infertility treatment, embryology and stem cell research, an area where Britain was the first country to regulate and extend these practices. It is however a controversial area: Britain has recently legalised the use of human-animal hybrid embryos and the registration of birth by two mothers, other countries have taken a very different approach, based on their history, religion and culture. The USA and Germany present alternative perspectives on these topics, which will be evaluated. How far should one go in the pursuit of health and fertility?
