  2. Allison B. Wolf (2014). Lessons From Latin America: A Commentary of Florencia Luna, "Challenges for Assisted Reproduction and Secondary Infertility in Latin America". International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 7 (1):28-34.

    In this article, I investigate actions that the United States took against Costa Rica during the 1980s in order to argue that current discussions about global justice and its foundations are flawed in three ways.
