Description - Regulating Reproduction: Law, Technology and Autonomy by Emily Jackson
Providing a clear and accessible analysis of the various ways in which human reproduction is regulated, this is a comprehensive exposition of the law relating to birth control, abortion, pregnancy, childbirth, surrogacy and assisted conception. It also offers an exploration of some of the complex ethical dilemmas that emerge when one of the most intimate areas of human life is subjected to regulatory control. Throughout the book, two principal themes recur. First, particular emphasis is placed upon the special difficulties that arise in regulating new technological intervention in all aspects of the reproductive process. Second, the concept of reproductive autonomy is both interrogated and defended. This book offers an account of the complex relationships between law, technology and reproduction. It should be useful for lecturers and students taking medical law or ethics courses. It should also be of interest to anyone with a more general interest in women's bodies and the law, or with the profound regulatory consequences of new technologies.
