Woman allowed to challenge dead daughter’s egg use ruling – BBC News

Do wishes made verbally before death hold any value after? Is having this child a right in order for potential life to be realised  or an emotional reaction for a grieving mother?

Alternatively consider the future impact this could have on you if you were the child. Would it be a beautiful act of true family love or something you could never cope with?

Can it be done? And if so should it be done? Is this doctor possibly going to provide a solution for many disabled and terminal ill people….or is he changing what it means to be human?!

I don’t know, but if it’s going to happen we need to decide soon!

Gabbana responds to Sir Elton’s boycott calls – BBC Newsbeat

Big twitter argument between Elton John and fashion designer Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce and Gabbana obviously). All after comments that the designer made about IVF and surrogate children being ‘synthetic’. Elton John has called for a #boycottD&G as he takes this as a personal attack on his own children (born of a surrogate).

There have always been debates on how much technology should be used to interfere with life, but it’s interesting to note that these same arguments aren’t always used when we’re talking about life saving techniques. How might Mr Gabbana respond to pace makers?
