Senator PATTERSON (Minister for Health and Ageing) (9:49 PM) — We must not loose sight of the debate. We are debating the Research Involving Embryos Bill 2002 and now we are talking about the trade in adult stem cell lines. The bill is about research on excess ART embryos. We have to get back to that. We are sliding off onto other issues. Whatever the answer is, I will not be supporting the amendment. It really is on the side of the debate. We are talking about research involving embryos, not trade in adult stem cell lines.
