Senator HOGG (12:46 PM) —I did not give that a great deal of thought when I put the amendment together. As you can see, in framing the amendment all I did was insert the word `human' in front of `embryo'; and then, in the existing proposal in the bill, instead of the word `purpose', the words that I included were the words from `sole' down to `21(4)(b) and'. So I tried not to disturb the intent that was there previously, but I tried to focus more on the issue that the excess ART embryos were for the purpose of embryonic stem cell research as opposed to necessarily a wider, more far-ranging group of other research activities that might take place—because I think that was the basic focus of this bill and the intent of that particular part of the bill.
