Woman loses frozen embryos case, will appeal

A High Court ruling in Ireland in November that frozen embryos do not have the same constitutional right to life as those carried in the womb, will be appealed to the Supreme Court. The decision means the woman who took the case cannot have the embryos, held in a fertility clinic, implanted in her against the wishes of her separated husband. (See Who owns frozen embryos following separation? below for background).
