Abstract

In Re D is the most recent in a line of cases to have raised problems with the determination of legal fatherhood under s.28(3) of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act (1990). The judgment is interesting in particular as a demonstration of the growing currency of the idea that a child has a right to ‘genetic truth’ and for further evidencing a ‘fragmentation of fatherhood’.
