Assisted human reproduction is an area of law that I really need to beef up on when my calendar clears. I think the pro-life movement and others interested in ethical quandaries should be doing some additional thinking and writing on the issue. As noted in yesterday’s Ottawa Citizen:
“There is no ethical framework for assisted reproduction. There is no guidance for practitioners or for the public as to what should or shouldn’t be allowed, and how it should be conducted,” says Dr. Arthur Leader, a physician and co-founder of the Ottawa Fertility Clinic, the only place in Ottawa to offer third-party reproductive assistance services.
If you’re someone who has an expertise in this area and want to chat about it, please drop me a line. It can be done in confidence, if you’d like.by
