Public Policy and Legal Challenges Ahead

Part Four — Looking to the Future


From: Fertility


In Public Policy and Legal Challenges Ahead McTeer examines the current federal legislation that governs assisted human reproduction (AHR) and how many types of embryo research will inevitably become inadequate for handling new and emerging technologies and reproductive practices. The chapter reflects on the future of reproductive research, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Stem Cell Oversight Committee, the patentability of higher human life forms, the International Society for Stem Cell Research 2021 guidelines, the commercialization of surrogacy, surrogacy agreements, and more.
