Title: Regulating Reproduction: A Historical Analysis of the Legal Approaches to Advances in Assisted Reproduction Techonology
Creators: Vernon, Jeffrey

Issue Date: 2012-02
Abstract: Curiously, scholars have largely focused on one piece of the human reproduction equation – preventing or terminating pregnancy through either contraception or abortion. Under a related analytical framework, scholars have also explored the issue of eugenics. However, little work has been completed on efforts to facilitate procreation and the advent of fertility treatment, which has advanced rapidly since the 1970s. Moreover, it is essential that scholars research and understand how society has responded to the continuously developing field of assisted reproduction, because it allows for a more accurate representation of rights associated with procreation. Even Roe v. Wade, a landmark case supporting a woman’s right to choose to terminate her pregnancy, has important implications and connections with facilitating pregnancy. The Supreme Court’s rationale has been cited in support of expanding the right of privacy and reproductive liberty to protecting the right to procreate.
