This invitation only workshop strikes me as such a good idea in both form and substance. Imagine! Thinking and talking! Making Sense of Abortion and Assisted Reproduction Workshop at Rutgers
I look forward to seeing what comes out of this series. Such an important conversation to have – certainly one we need to keep having in Canada.
Here’s the schedule and below from the invitation as shown on the website.
Questions we imagine tackling include:
- Whether a right to create a pregnancy through assisted reproduction is or should be as rooted in the constitution as a right to terminate a pregnancy?
- What common ground and common cause can be found between those who advocate on behalf of people who use ART and women who want to terminate pregnancies?
- What are the commonalities between different ways in which women might be stigmatized for using their reproductive capacity, such as working as surrogates, versus exercising a right not to use that capacity by terminating a pregnancy?
- Is paternalism in the use of ART different from and/or more justified than paternalism in decision making about terminating pregnancies?
