Andrew Koppelman on the Thirteenth Amendment and Abortion

Andrew Koppelman (Northwestern University School of Law) has posted Forced Labor, Revisited: The Thirteenth Amendment and Abortion on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

KopplemanMany recent works on the Thirteenth Amendment break new ground, deploying the amendment in new and creative ways. This is not one of them. I here restate an argument I made twenty years ago, defending abortion rights on the basis of the amendment. I then consider how the work was received, offer some amendments to the argument, and conclude with some reflections on how, perhaps, it can have more influence in the future.
