Policing Pregnancy: The Law and Ethics of Obstetric Conflict
Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics 13 (1):38-38 (2010)
Are pregnant women entitled to the same rights of self-determination and bodily integrity as other adults? This is the fundamental question underlying recent highprofile legal interventions in situations when pregnant women and healthcare staff do not agree on management options or appropriate behaviour. Courts on both sides of the Atlantic have sometimes answered that they are not, and the law has at times been manipulated to enforce compliance with medical recommendations. This book offers a comprehensive assessment of healthcare law as applied to the unique situation of pregnancy
