June 21, 2018
(Australian Broadcasting Co) – In what has been described as a landmark decision, the Supreme Court in Brisbane has granted a Toowoomba woman the right to use her dead boyfriend’s sperm to have a baby. Ayla Cresswell’s partner Joshua Davies died suddenly in August 2016, and within hours the court granted permission for his sperm to be harvested. Ms Cresswell sought approval from the court to use the sperm, which is being held at an IVF clinic.
