Description/Abstract

In this article I consider the changing conceptualisation(s) of child welfare, with specific consideration of the value judgements present in Anglo-Welsh legal discourse and policy on/around assisted conception, particularly donor conception, since the inception of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (HFEA 1990). I begin with a brief historical introduction to the inclusion of a welfare ground in the HFEA 1990, and continue by tracking the shift from concern over ‘the family’ norm to notions of children’s rights and interests in their identity.
