ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION: A REPLY TO DEAN TALLIN
AbstractThis article was written in response to another submitted in two instalments to the January and February 1956 issues of the Canadian Bar Review. Although agreeing with much of what he says, the author divides Tallin’s argument into seven propositions that were considered in reaching the conclusion that heterologous artificial insemination of a married woman is adultery; the author strongly objects to most of these propositions, using the body of this article to record his criticism of each. He then includes an alternative basis for Tallin’s conclusion, namely that an act of sexual intercourse is unnecessary to the commission of adultery, the surrender of one’s reproductive faculty to someone other than one’s spouse being sufficient to render the conduct in question adulterous.
