Creepy In-Vitro Fertilisation Using Eggs From A Dead Teenager

A desperate Israeli family won a court decision that lets them extract and freeze the eggs from their dead daughter. The teenage girl died unexpectedly last week after a car crash.

The parents wanted her eggs to be fertilised before storage but that request was denied. If the parents prove their daughter expressed an interest in bearing children, her eggs could be fertilised and a grandchild could be created.

Though creepy, this isn't the first time a baby was made post-mortem. Another Israeli couple used sperm from their deceased son to create a grandchild using a surrogate mother. [Guardian]
