The Alberta Law Reform Institute has released its Report for Discussion 23: Succession and Posthumously Conceived Children
"Advances in artificial reproductive technologies have made possible the birth of a child after the death of one or both of its genetic parents. The existence of posthumously conceived children has created legal challenges for the law of succession. Whether these children should have inheritance rights adds further complexity to an area that is becoming increasingly common as the technology for storage and application of reproductive material improves."
"Report for Discussion 23: Succession and Posthumously Conceived Children discusses the position of posthumously conceived children under the law of succession in Alberta and outlines some possible options for reform. In order to provide for a comprehensive and efficient review of the feedback, the deadline for submitting comments is June 30, 2012."
