Purvis: "Of Financial Rights of Assisted Reproductive Technology: Non-Marital Children and Back-Up Plans"
Dara Purvis (visiting Univ. of Illinois College of Law) has posted "Of Financial Rights of Assisted Reproductive Technology: Non-Marital Children and Back-Up Plans" (83 S. Cal. L. Rev. Postscript (2011)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Response to Courtney G. Joslin, Protecting Children(?): Marriage, Gender, and Assisted Reproductive Technology, 83 S. CAL. L. REV. 1177 (2010).
This short response argues that Joslin’s parentage rule assessing intent at conception cannot be utilized without a clearer definition of conception and that it should be expanded to assess intent at any point before birth.
