“MAINS v REDDEN [2011] FamCAFC 184”

The “irreversibility” of a procedure is one characteristic, along with numerous other factors which the Court has weighed in deciding similar cases, which has assumed some significance in the jurisprudence with respect to “special medical procedures”, discussed above. Once a child has been immunised, the process itself is irreversible. It is also likely that the consequences of immunisation may be irreversible. Unless the process has irreversible adverse consequences, “irreversibility” does not appear to have the same potential significance which it clearly had in the authorities to which reference has earlier been made. Adverse consequences would be a relevant consideration

irrespective of their reversibility or irreversibility.
