Access to Assisted Conception: A Call for Legislative Reform in Light of the Modern Family (Susan Doe v. Attorney General of Canada)

by Lisa Feldstein

Published by Canadian Journal of Family Law

Specifically, it considers the Processing and Distribution of Semen for Assisted Conception Regulations and how these regulations serve to exclude certain individuals who do not fit into the "traditional" nuclear family model. The author
critiques the judgement of Susan Doe v. Attorney General of Canada and calls for legislative reform in order for the laws to accurately reflect realities of the family in the 21st century.
