Harm Paradox by Nicolette Priaulx
Book DescriptionOffering the first comprehensive theoretical engagement with actions for wrongful conception and birth, The Harm Paradox provides readers with an insightful critique into the concepts of choice, responsibility and personhood. Raising fundamental questions relating to birth, abortion, family planning and disability, Priaulx challenges the law's response that enforced parenthood is a harmless outcome and examines the concept of autonomy, gender and women's reproductive freedom. It explores a wealth of questions, including: * Can a healthy child resulting from negligence in family planning procedures constitute 'harm' sounding in damages, when so many see its birth as a blessing? * Can a pregnancy constitute an 'injury' when many women choose that very event? * Are parents really harmed, when they choose to keep their much loved but 'unwanted child'? * Why don't women seek an abortion if the consequences of pregnancy are seen as harmful? An exciting and original contribution to the fields of medical law and ethics, tort law and feminist jurisprudence, this is an excellent resource for both students and practitioners.
