Intersections in Reproduction: Perspectives on Abortion, Assisted Reproductive Technologies, and Judicial Review

On April 17-18, 2014, Priscilla Smith and the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice in the ISP at Yale Law School, working in conjunction with the Petrie-Flom Center at Harvard Law School, will host a workshop to discuss papers that have been preliminarily selected for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics co-edited by Judith Daar (Whittier Law School) and Kimberly Mutcherson (Rutgers Law-Camden).

Abortion and reproductive technologies have historically occupied separate realms in law, policy, and academia. In spite of some obvious and natural overlap, scholarship exploring the relationship between abortion and assisted reproduction is sparse.  A special issue of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics will be devoted to articles reflecting on this relationship. JLME is a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics.

This event is by invitation only.
