Department of Health and Social Care
Fertility: Medical Treatments
Commons
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to assess the implications of the judgment in R (TT) v Registrar General for England and Wales & Ors ((2019) EWHC 2384 (Fam)) on members of the trans community who wish to access fertility treatment at a licensed clinic.

Answered by: Caroline Dinenage
Answered on: 17 October 2019

The Court found that the scheme of birth registration for the children of transmen is lawful and proportionate. The Government welcomes the Court’s decision.

The Government’s view is that the judgment has no effect on the availability of regulated fertility treatment and will now consider whether there should be further guidance to clarify this position. The Government considers that regulated fertility treatment is currently, and will remain, equally available to all (trans) women and (trans) men under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Acts.
