Lords rule in favour of “designer babies”
The House of Lords ruled today the use of “designer babies” to treat genetic disorders in siblings was lawful.

It was reported yesterday that the campaign group Comment on Reproductive Ethics had appealed to the Lords to rule the practice illegal under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990.

The case centred on an Appeal Court ruling in 2003 that overturned a ban on the use of fertility treatment to help save the live of a boy with a potentially terminal blood defect.

Today the five Law Lords unanimously concluded that tissue typing to create siblings suitable for transplants was legitimate under the existing law.
