High Court Judge Rules Man Can Be Sterilised

Recommended Posts


A High Court judge has sanctioned the sterilisation of a man "in his best interests" in a landmark legal ruling.

The 36-year-old, from the Midlands, has learning difficulties and already has a son, born in 2010, with his girlfriend.

Mrs Justice Eleanor King ruled that a vasectomy could take place after hearing that another child could cause the man "psychological harm".

Experts said he was capable of sexual consent but did not have the capacity to make decisions about contraception.

They said the man, referred to as DE, could not be relied upon to use condoms or other birth control methods effectively to prevent pregnancy.

The Court of Protection in London has heard that DE does not want to become a father again.

Slightly puzzled as to what other methods a man could use as birth control methods other than condoms.

Certainly a difficult case, if he's incapable of making this decision are they going to force him into the hospital to do it? How will they check that it's worked, are they going to force him to masturbate into a jar to check it?
