 Plans to use eggs from the ovaries of aborted foetuses for IVF treatment have been greeted with horror by pro-life groups and many in the scientific community. Fertility experts at a conference in Madrid where the research was announced said the development could ease a global shortage of donated eggs. But the experiment has also created the prospect of a child whose biological mother has never been born. It also raises fears that female foetuses could become a highly marketable commodity. A spokesman for the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority cast doubt on whether the technique would ever he allowed in the UK. He said: "In 1994 the HFEA decided that it would be difficult for any child to come to terms with being created from using aborted foetal material." Nuala Scarisbrook from Life, said: "This latest development is sickening. Dead babies cannot give their consent. The scientists should be ashamed of themselves." The Rt Rev Peter Smith, Archbishop of Cardiff, who chairs the Bishops Conference Department for Christian Responsibility and Citizenship told ICN: this afternoon: "During the last 18 months scientists working in this field seem have completely lost their way. This is like going back to the Nazi experiments performed during the Second World War."
