NUS Trans Officer and NUS Women's Officer on the Freddy McConnell court case
"The decision not to recognise Freddy McConnell as a father on his child’s birth certificate reveals the current failings of legal gender recognition and should be a matter of grave concern to anyone committed to the fight for reproductive justice.
The court's decision flies in the face of the spirit of the Gender Recognition Act, and sends a message to trans parents that their right to privacy and a family life will not be respected. We hope that a future potential appeal or Act of Parliament rectifies this sad state of affairs for transgender parents."
