Widow wins High Court bid to keep 'last chance' embryos

It means I get to keep part of him

– Samantha Jefferies

The widow of a Falklands war veteran has won a High Court bid to keep frozen embryos that they created.

After Clive Jefferies died suddenly in 2014 his wife Samantha was told that her embryos could not be stored for longer than two years - despite the couple consenting to 10.

The case was taken to High Court, where the judge said it was 'obviously right' that they were stored for ten years and said he was sorry Samantha had gone through so much stress because of the mistakes of others.
