Presents the concerns of the Canadian Disabilty Rights Council and DAWN Canada on the topic of reproductive technologies. These discussion papers were produced to be presented to the Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies, as a tool to foster discussion about what they regard as troublesome aspects of reproductive technology. Both groups share the view that reproductive technologies do not enhance the equality of disabled persons, and could in fact be viewed as a eugenic tool.
