  Lorraine Hadley Friday 3 October 2003  
For 38-year-old Lorraine Hadley the two frozen embryos created with her ex-husband's sperm are her best hope of having a child, but a judgement this week means the embryos will be destroyed within 28 days unless she pursues an appeal.

Lorraine Hadley joins Martha to explain why she believes this ruling gives the father a veto over the mother's desire for a child.
