Court Says Woman, 62, Allowed to Get Pregnant From Dead Husband

AUSTRALIAN COURT SAYS WOMAN CAN EXTRACT SPERM FROM DEAD HUSBAND TO MAKE BABY

There’s so much wrong with this I don’t know where to begin.  There’s a 62-year-old woman in Australia, a widow, who wants to extract her dead husband’s sperm to have a baby.  That’s the nuts and bolts of the story, as it were.  And that alone is enough to make me wonder at the wisdom of modern medicine, as well as legal systems allowing its use to do things like this.  But the Western Australia Supreme Court says the woman is allowed to do this.  A woman in her much later years will have a baby from her dead husband to raise alone.

So yes, there is obviously some significant backstory to all of this.  Which I would assume swayed the court, both on merit and on the literal law.  The woman and her husband had had two adult children who died accidentally.  And, the woman says that she and her husband had planned to have another child, carried by a surrogate.  And yes, this theoretical child made by her husband’s dead sperm and her egg will be carried by a surrogate; her cousin in the Philippines has volunteered for the baby carrying duty.  But in Western Australia, it’s apparently against the law to use someone’s reproductive cells posthumously.

COURT SAID THEY HAD NO IMPRESSION DEAD HUSBAND WOULD OBJECT TO USE OF SPERM POSTHUMOUSLY

And that means a dead man’s sperm.  But despite this, upon review, the Western Australia Supreme Court says yes to the sperm extraction, fertilization, and baby momma surrogacy.  I’m pretty disturbed by the entire idea.  But the Court says that they see no reason to think the dead husband would have objected.  But I must say that the risks to the baby didn’t seem to sway the court.  What risks?  Older sperm tend to have more chromosomal abnormalities, with much higher risks for a host of otherwise more rare maladies, though I must say autism doesn’t seem to be so rare these days.

I wonder what she will tell the child about its father in a few years?
