Burkstrand-Reid: "The More Things Change . . . Abortion Politics & the Regulation of Assisted Reproductive Technology"

Beth Burkstrand-Reid (Univ. of Neb. College of Law) has posted "The More Things Change...:Abortion Politics & the Regulation of Assisted Reproductive Technology" (79 UMKC L. Rev. (2010)) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Abortion and assisted reproductive technology (“ART”) may seem paradoxical in reproductive health: a woman seeks to terminate a pregnancy in the first, while a woman goes through herculean attempts to attain one in the latter. In fact, they share fundamental concerns: women’s health and autonomy. Both include medical procedures, with potential health risks and benefits, and both help a woman choose whether and when to become a mother. Abortion and ART share another commonality: when these issues enter public and political discourse, consideration of women’s health often recedes into the background. This response to articles by June Carbone and Jody Lyneé Madeira suggests that issues central to the development of abortion-related regulation and jurisprudence have the potential to drive the development of ART and related law.
