I think you needed to — I think the important thing for intended parents is to understand what environment they were operating in, but I think because there wasn’t really explicit laws to refer to, that’s why I think engaging with lawyers either here or there was less useful. Patients’ ‘pathologies of reasoning’ 85 are not confined to over-optimism. As King and Moulton explain, patient comprehension may also be affected by ‘availability bias’, where patients ‘overestimate their risk of contracting a condition that receives substantial media coverage, such as breast cancer’; ‘compression bias’, which involves ‘patients overestimating small risks and underestimating large ones’; ‘small numbers bias’ where patients ‘misinterpret their individual risk based on a small number of known cases (my two friends both had complications after their hysterectomies, so I probably will too)’; and ‘miscalibration bias’ which involves patients being ‘overly confident about the extent or accuracy of their knowledge’. 86

Regulating Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing: the view from the UK' (2014) 50 Japanese Journal of Law and Political Science 9-19.The social and legal developments which we have mentioned point away from a model of the relationship between the doctor and the patient based on medical paternalism. They also point away from a model based on a view of the patient as being entirely dependent on information provided by the doctor. What they point towards is an approach to the law which, instead of treating patients as placing themselves in the hands of their doctors (and then being prone to sue their doctors in the event of a disappointing outcome), treats them so far as possible as adults who are capable of understanding that medical treatment is uncertain of success and may involve risks, accepting responsibility for the taking of risks affecting their own lives, and living with the consequences of their choices. 10

Some reported that fertility doctors were unwilling to provide any form of information at all. Dian, for instance, said: The behavioral critique strikes EU consumer law at its heart, by questioning its preferred regulatory approach: the information paradigm, which has characterized EU consumer law since it came into existence. 47 Coverage of the proposals set out in the Law Commissions' consultation on reform of the law on surrogacy Thirdly, the purpose of pre-contractual disclosures may be different from medical disclosures in two important ways. First, although, as Howells points out, ‘regulatory policy is no longer fixated with the idea of a malevolent trader trying to con consumers but, rather, focuses on the asymmetries of information between trader and consumer’, 33 retailers are nevertheless trying to sell their products and services to consumers. If retailers are under an obligation to disclose certain information to potential consumers, they may deliberately include it in their ‘small print’ terms and conditions, which they know are seldom read. 34 One is I knew that technically by the law of New South Wales, we were breaking that law. [Another parent] kind of put my feelings in that regard at ease in saying "well, if they arrest you for it, they’re going to arrest hundreds of other people who have done exactly the same thing that you’re thinking of doing", which made me feel better about being more open about it.
