Courtney Joslin on the Legal Regulation of Pregnancy and Childbirth

Courtney G. Joslin (University of California, Davis - School of Law) has posted Legal Regulation of Pregnancy and Childbirth on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Joslin This piece, a short entry in The Child: An Encyclopedic Companion, examines the legal regulation of pregnant women. In particular, the article discusses whether and under what circumstances the state can force pregnant women to undergo unwanted medical treatments or physically restrain or punish pregnant women for engaging in otherwise legal conduct when the state believes that these interventions are necessary to protect the fetus from potential harms.
