Misuse of the law does not forbid childless couples.

The court ruled against a hospitals decision not to allow the transfer of embryos to another hospital as desired by a childless couple . The couple from Perumbavoor challenged the Craft Hospital in Kodungallurs .

Kochi, April 4, 2019: The Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Act (ART Act), which is intended to discourage misuse, should not be used to discourage people who opt for assisted reproduction methods, according to the high court, who ruled against a hospital's decision not to allow the transfer of embryos to another hospital as desired by a childless couple.Justice VG Arun was hearing a plea by a couple from Perumbavoor challenging the Craft Hospital in Kodungallur's decision not to allow the transfer of embryos stored at the hospital to another hospital of the couple's choice, citing section 29 of the ART Act.The court said in its decision, The intention is to prohibit the restriction of the sale, etc.of human gametes, zygotes, and embryos.

Apart from the aspirations of the first petitioner to conceive and the second petitioner to beget a child, the right of the embryo's life inside to develop into a foetus and be born cannot be stultified by relying on a clause that has no effect.The act's goal is to establish rules and oversight in relation to the assisted reproductive technology clinics and banks.The couple married in July 2007 and decided to begin infertility care at Craft Hospital when they were unable to conceive.In September 2014, the wife underwent an Oocytes Retrieval Technique, and of the six eggs injected, four were fertilized.

In 2016, the surgery was discontinued because the chief consultant told the department that the required wall thickness of the uterus could not be obtained.The wife's sister, who underwent the same procedure, was born after ten years of marriage, and this restored their hopes.They returned to Sabine Hospital in Muvattupuzha and obtained embryo transfer as per the hospital's instructions.Tnn tnn tnn tnn.
