Description
The analysis of Parliamentary debates provides the opportunity to assess the political context of Canadian legislation, particularly in controversial areas such as stem cell research. Parliamentary debates surrounding the recent Assisted Human Reproduction Act,1 which lasted nearly a decade, were dominated by religious conservatives. At the forefront of the debate were issues such as the moral status of the embryo and the regulation of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). The resulting restrictive statutory provisions that ban SCNT ultimately arose from a convergence of rhetoric on dignity and the moral status of the embryo, and the resultant promotion of adult stem cell research.
