Luke Milligan on Fetal Homicide Laws and Rawls

Luke M. Milligan (University of Louisville Law School) has posted A Theory of Stability: John Rawls, Fetal Homicide, and Substantive Due Process, Boston University Law Review, Vol. 87, No. 5, 2007, on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This Article evaluates the bifurcated approach to fetal rights in the light of John Rawls's political philosophy. In particular, it seeks to discern whether fetal-homicide laws, as they presently exist, suggest a societal recognition of fetal personhood, and, if so, whether this renders the right to abortion inconsistent with Rawlsian principles of justice.
