The Queen on the Application of Mellor v Secretary of State for the Home Department Prisoners and artificial insemination - have the courts got it right? [2002] CFLQ 217
Date:28 SEP 2011

This commentary considers the recent case-law on whether prisoners have a right to access artificial insemination facilities. The cases are considered in the context of rights under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms 1950 and the American Constitution. It is critical of the restrictive approach taken by the courts and advocates that the right to reproduce is, subject of course to some restrictions, a right that should not be too readily denied to prisoners.
