Is it “every man's right to have babies if he wants them”?: Male pregnancy and the limits of reproductive liberty
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 18 (3):pp. 275-299 (2008)
Since the 1980s, a number of medical researchers have suggested that in the future it might be possible for men to become pregnant. Given the role played by the right to reproductive liberty in other debates about reproductive technologies, it will be extremely difficult to deny that this right extends to include male pregnancy. However, this constitutes a reductio ad absurdum of the idea of reproductive liberty. One therefore would be well advised to look again at the extent of this purported right in other contexts in which it is deployed.
