This course is about reproductive rights as they are currently defined by U.S. law. We will consider abortion, voluntary and forced contraception & sterilization, minors’ rights and education, public funding, pregnancy, technology, assisted reproduction, and surrogacy, the rights of underrepresented groups, and international law. The issues will be discussed from the perspective of social justice and include, human rights, and civil liberties as they intersect with reproductive justice, racial and environmental justice; LGBTQ liberation; freedoms of speech, religion, and association; freedom from illegal search and seizure or cruel and unusual punishment; rights to privacy, bodily autonomy, and equality; and birthing, parenting, and family formation rights.
