Widow fights to keep late husband’s sperm for IVF

A young widow has been told she has just weeks to decide whether to use her late husband’s sperm to conceive a child despite her warning that her grief has left her feeling unready to take such a step.

Beth Warren’s husband Warren Brewer, who lost his battle with cancer in February last year, left clear instructions that his wife should be allowed to start a family after his death.

The 28-year-old has been told she risks missing her chance to conceive Mr Brewer’s child unless she starts IVF treatment next month because under the current rules his sperm store will be destroyed in April 2015.

Mrs Warren, from Birmingham, plans to take her case to the High Court to fight for a change in the rules.
