Whereas, The Assisted Human Reproduction Act imposes only selective regulations for the practices of alteration, manipulation and treatment of human reproductive material; and

Whereas, The Supreme Court of Canada noted that parliament could have prohibited absolutely the practices of alteration, manipulation and treatment of human reproductive material; and

Whereas, Manipulation and mistreatment of human reproductive material may result in the destruction of human embyros; therefore be it
