Import and Export of Gametes and Embryos
Thank you for this opportunity to make a submission on these important questions. At the outset I wish to state that our Society upholds the natural law of our Creator in pro-creation. We believe that human life begins at conception and that at conception the new human being is endowed by its Creator with human rights, the foundation right being a right to life. From conception the new human being should be accorded the respect that is due to the human person. We are therefore opposed to the creation of human embryos in a petri dish. We also believe that human gametes should be treated with great respect and we are therefore opposed to them being subject to import and export.
