Sir Andrew McFarlane, president of the Family Division of the High Court, is overseeing the case at a trial in London.
He is analysing legal argument from lawyers representing the man, the baby, the head of the General Register Office, Department of Health and Social Care ministers and Home Office ministers.Anyone want to place any bets on how this is going to go?
Lawyers say that if Sir Andrew rules in favour of the man, the baby could be the first person born in England and Wales who will not legally have a mother.
The man says being forced to register as a ‘mother’ breaches his human right to respect for private and family life.What on earth is there to 'respect' in this grotesque, selfish, attention-seeking freakshow?
Such ‘interference’ is not proportionate or necessary in the light of changes which have ‘evolved in society’, he says.Evolution is what made you able to carry a child. What has made you pretend to be something it's clear you are not is something else entirely.
