Story of Twins who Married Fuels Legislative Debate & Final Exams

By now you've all had a student bring you the news reports of the twins separated at birth who later married not knowing they were siblings.  (My students were sending me the article in droves because the fact situation formed the basis for one of the essay questions on last semester's final exam -- they couldn't believe my crazy exam story really happened).  The case was brought to public attention in aid of legislative push in Parliament to give adopted children  full access to their birth records during a debate on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill.  Read the Telegraph story on the legislation.
