German court rules transsexual woman can’t be ‘mother’

Berlin – Germany’s top court has ruled that a transsexual woman whose frozen sperm was used to fertilise an egg can only be registered as the child’s father.

The Federal Court said judges concluded “the transsexual person’s fundamental rights aren’t breached by the fact that existing ancestry law assigns her the legal status of parent according to her former sex and the specific contribution to procreation that resulted from this”.
