MORAL EVILS V. HEALTH AND SAFETY
       EVILS: THE CASE OF AN OVUM
   OBTAINED FROM A DONOR AND
   USED BY THE DONOR IN HER OWN
          SURROGATE PREGNANCY

                  Pamela   M.  White*

This paper  critically examines the amendment made in
2012   to  section   10(2)(c)  of  the  Assisted  Human
Reproduction   Act, 2004  mandating   the  screening  and
testing of obtained ovum  donated  by a  donor  and


Dr Pamela M White holds an LLM (Medical Law and Ethics) from
Kent Law  School, University of Kent and a PhD from McGill
University. For over twenty-five years Dr White worked at Statistics
Canada as senior Director in the divisions of Demography, Health Data
Analysis, and Data Access and Security where she managed research
programs, member of the editorial board for journal Health Reports,
and undertook social, health, and family data analysis. During this
time, she took assignments with the Office of the Federal Privacy
Commissioner and Assisted Human  Reproduction Canada. Since
2013, Dr White has been a Specialist Associate Lecturer, Kent Law
School, University of Kent where she teaches undergraduate and LLM
degree courses in medical law and ethics and privacy and data
protection law. At Canterbury Christchurch University, she teaches
Medical Law to law students and Health Law and Ethics to those
enrolled in the Health Science program. She has published extensively
on Canada's misplaced and misguided Assisted Human Reproduction
Act. Her work melds qualitative and quantitative data analysis with
critical legal studies to investigate gendered harms and liminal legal
spaces. Her publications focussing on surrogacy highlight Canada's
lack of empirical data on the practice and its outcomes. Attempts to
locate information reveals that Canada is an emerging hub for
international surrogacy.
