Robynne Kazina speaks to Global NEWS, CBC and Winnpeg Free Press, about parentage laws and filing a constitutional challenge towards the outdated assisted reproduction laws currently in place.
Manitoba’s current legislation is outdated, unconstitutional, and discriminatory against same-sex couples and couples experiencing infertility.
Under the current Manitoba legislation, when a child is born through assisted reproduction, the intended parents often have to go through a court order or an adoption process to be declared as the legal parents of their own child, if they have no biological connection.
Robynne represents 7 Manitoba couples listed on the court filing, you can read more about one of the couples on the CBC news website here.
