I see that the issue of frozen embryos has arisen in the Irish courts. In a preliminary ruling, the Irish High Court found that a 44-year-old Dublin man had not given his consent for his estranged wife to use three embryos left over after the couple underwent IVF treatment.They had initally created 6 embryos that would one day become their children.
This case is similar to the Evans case which this Blog has already covered.
This case goes to the heart of the issue of the Unborn and the rights that Bunreacht na hÉireann has bestowed upon them.
He insisted in the High Court that it was his basic human right not to be forced to father another child with a woman from whom he had separated. I am afraid to say that I believe that this man is talking out of his behind.
No such right exists but Bunreacht na hÉireann does protect the rights of the Unborn under Article 40.3.3. These embroys are not just biological garbage, they are this mans unborn children.
The Judge made the wrong decision in this case in my opinion. This man consented to the creation of these embryos and after that he should not be allowed to change his mind once the creation of life has begun.
The High Court has no right to usurp the constitutional authority of Bunreacht na hÉireann. Upon review of the Supreme Court I have no doubt that this case will be overturned.
The Supreme Court needs to stand up for the rights of the Unborn and not allow this man to destroy the Unborns chance at life.
