Liberties, Claims, Entitlements, and Trumps: Reproductive Rights and Ecological Responsibilities

Journal of Religious Ethics 26 (2):283 - 294 (1998)
Abstract
This essay is a foray into the question of whether the language of human rights might one day serve to put decisions of human reproduction into the framework of accountability to social and ecological justice. Two possibilities seem to present themselves: (1) extending moral concern to beings who have not been considered worthy of it so that they are accorded biotic rights and (2) enlarging the definition of rights so that the umbrella is natural rights, with human rights constituting only a subset of such rights.
