Woman trying to use frozen embryos loses
by UPI

STRASBOURG - The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in France has ruled against a British woman fighting to use frozen embryos fertilized by an ex-partner.

Natallie Evans of Trowbridge, England, was left infertile by treatment for ovarian cancer. She and her ex-partner, Howard Johnston, began in-vitro fertilization treatment in 2001 but he asked the clinic to destroy their six embryos when the couple broke up in 2002, the BBC reported.

Evans wanted to use the embryos and pursued her case in the European Court after exhausting her options in the British legal system, the BBC reported.

After losing before the European Court of Human Rights, she appealed to its Grand Chamber, which also ruled against her in her final chance to save the embryos, the BBC reported.

British law allows either the man or the woman involved in an IVF procedure to withdraw consent before embryos are transferred.
