Prologue
That this General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada agree that:
1. We affirm marriage, as a lifelong union in faithful love to the exclusion of all others on either side, to be a full and complete sacrament of the unity between two persons in and of itself. We support those who have entered into this covenant.
2. We understand that the procreation of children is a good that might come out of a couple's mutual love, but the absence of children in no way renders a marriage incomplete.
3. We affirm any married couple's desire for children from their union. But we ask all couples, their friends and families, to consider the reality of various limitations for example, fertility, personality, genetic impairment which may make children for them either impossible, hurtful or simply unwise. We ask our Christian communities to uphold those who are living within such limitations or restrictions.
4. We find the practice of "surrogate motherhood" to be an unacceptable means of acquiring children, whether undertaken as a financial or charitable transaction. We find that this dehumanizing practice reduces human life in the new "image of God" to a commodity. It removes the creation of new life from the sacramental relationship of woman and man in mutual love. It leaves a legacy for both birth mother and child which in all likelihood will be hurtful and destructive.
5. We express our ethical concern that the practice of "surrogate motherhood" will abuse women by denying their role as the actual bearers and mothers of children.
6. We pledge our support to couples who would wish to have children from their union but find themselves unable to do so. We pray that they will find satisfaction for this longing without resorting to any technology or practice which may ultimately be disrespectful or destructive to them, their marriage, a child, or any other person. We encourage technologies and practices which do respect each of these.
Mrs. Margaret McKeith requested that the following paragraph be added to the resolution:
"7. We affirm adoptive parents and adopted children in the life of the church as full members of the Christian family".
The mover and seconder agreed.
The Reverend Michael Rowe requested that paragraph #2 be changed as follows:
"2. We understand that the procreation of children is a good that might come out of a couple's mutual love, but the absence of children in itself does not compromise the integrity and value of a marriage".

The change was accepted by the mover and seconder.
