Suitability for assisted reproduction
Published on: 23/09/2015

In Victoria, when prospective parents want help from the medical profession to conceive, the state and the medical professions make decisions whether or not to provide people with IVF.

A recent case in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal found that it was not in the best interests of a potential child that the woman known as TPV should proceed with IVF treatment.

In the the woman had some of her other children taken out of her care.

Other cases both in Australia and overseas highlight issues around the suitability of candidates for assisted reproduction.
