Woman wins right to dead fiance's sperm

AN IPSWICH woman has won the right to store a dead man’s sperm and bear his child.

Kelly Floyd was engaged to marry the late Troy Jarvis before he was hit by a train and killed on a level crossing at Geebung on Brisbane’s north side.

Ms Floyd took her case to the Supreme Court, which ruled that she had permission to remove the sperm from Mr Jarvis and store it in an IVF facility.

In her judgment, Justice Roslyn Atkinson said Ms Floyd planned to marry Mr Jarvis at the end of 2011.

“She said that they had constantly discussed having children and she had made an appointment with an obstetrician/gynaecologist, Dr Bob Watson, for July 26 ‘to go and see about having a child’,” Justice Atkinson wrote in her judgment.

Ms Floyd had called Justice Atkinson on the day Mr Jarvis died to have the case heard.
