BMJ2008;336:976(3May), doi:10.1136/bmj.39563.495741.80 Reproductive liberty and deafnessClause 14(4)(9) of embryo bill should be amended or deletedAmendments to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990are currently passing through the UK Houses of Parliament.1Clause 14, section 4, number 9 (lines 23-30, page 10) says thatpeople or embryos known to have a gene, chromosome, or mitochondrionabnormality that confers a significant risk of serious physicalor mental disability, serious illness, or other serious medicalcondition must not be preferred over those not known to havean abnormality.This clause has been added to prevent positive selection ofdeaf donors deliberately to result in a deaf child, and oneoutcome would be that deaf parents could not use preimplantationdiagnosis to select embryos with genes for deafness.If passed, the bill would make it illegal for a deaf adult todonate gametes for in vitro fertilisation, even to close relatives.It would be illegal for deaf parents, using preimplantationgenetic diagnosis, to implant embryos with the genes for deafnessif normal embryos were available.Actively selecting for deafness is controversial. However, researchindicates that few people want to do this,23 and requests toclinics for the selection of "disability" are low.4 So, is itnecessary to legislate against something that is unlikely tohappen and for which guidelines already exist?This section of clause 14(4)(9) is discriminatory. The wordingimplies that deaf people are less valuable than "hearing" people,and likewise for their embryos. This contradicts attempts bythe UK government to recognise the equal status of deaf peoplein policy (through recognising British sign language) and inlaw (through equal rights for deaf people). Deaf people wishto have equal rights when making decisions about reproduction,even when genetic technology is involved. We are therefore arguingfor this section of the clause to be amended or omitted fromthe UK Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.Steve Emery, research fellow1, Teresa Blankmeyer Burke, bioethicist2, Anna Middleton, consultant research genetic counsellor3, Rachel Belk, genetic counsellor and NIHR research fellow4, Graham Turner, chair of interpreting and translation studies51 Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, School of Management and Languages, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh EH14 4AS, 2 Philosophy and Religion Department, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC 20002, USA, 3 Institute of Medical Genetics, School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Cardiff CF14 4XN, 4 Faculty of Medicine and Human Sciences, University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PT, 5 Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, School of Management and Languages, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh EH14 4AS Middletona1@cardiff.ac.ukCompeting interests: None declared.ReferencesEaton L.
