Changing conceptions of welfare
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.

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.
