This seminar looks at abortion from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives: legal, medical, philosophical, cross-cultural, sociological, historical, and political. It also draws upon representations of the experience of abortion from films and autobiographical accounts. Selected topics will include abortion secrecy, men and abortion, teenage abortion regulation, and an exploration of the status of the fetus. We will read the relevant Supreme Court cases but this is not at core a constitutional law seminar.
