Complainant Name:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics)

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

Complaint:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics) complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that its court action against the HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority) was focused upon a particular case – in which a family were seeking to select a test tube baby with the correct tissue type to treat their ill son – rather than a point of general principal. The complainant also objected to the suggestion that the illness in that case was terminal and therefore that CORE’s success in its legal challenge necessarily would sentence the child to death.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a letter from the complainant.

Report: 63
