Reproductive Rights: A Comparative Law Approach

This course will examine the growing body of law -- both domestic and transnational -- concerning the regulation of reproductive healthcare, including contraception, abortion, and assisted reproductive technologies. It will explore the limitations imposed on governments -- ability to regulate reproductive healthcare by the U.S. Constitution, foreign constitutions, and international human rights treaties, as well as positive obligations imposed by those instruments to ensure access to services. Special attention will be given to comparative analysis of rationales for the protection of reproductive rights.
