Liverpool Fertility Doctor Cleared of Telling Woman She Could Choose Sex of Her Baby
A Liverpool fertility doctor accused of telling a would-be mum how she could choose the sex of her baby was cleared of any wrongdoing. Liverpool Women's Hospital carried out an internal probe into the claims against Charles Kingsland. It followed claims in February last year that Kingsland, the clinical director of the hospital's Hewitt Centre for Reproductive Medicine, told a patient he could pave the way for her to have IVF in nothern Cyprus, where couples can choose whether to have a boy or a girl. "Family Balancing" procedures are strictly illegal under UK fertilization laws. The investigation found that there was no breach of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) licensing and compliance arrangements.
