Future developments such as preconception testing, non- intrusive prenatal testing and more extensive preimplantation testing promise to increase that access further still. The result may be greater reproductive choice, but it also increases the burden on women and men to avail themselves of these technologies in order to avoid having a child with a disability. The overwhelming question for legislators has been whether and, if so, how to regulate the use of these technologies in the face of compelling but seemingly contradictory claims about the advancement of reproductive choice and the dangers of eugenic or discriminatory effects. This book examines the evolution of this legislative oversight across a number of jurisdictions and explores the tensions and ambiguities that inform these laws"--|cProvided by publisher. 650 0 Human reproduction|xLaw and legislation. 650 0 Pregnancy|xLaw and legislation. 650 0 Pregnant women|xLegal status, laws, etc. 650 7 LAW / Medical Law & Legislation.|2bisacsh 650 12 Reproductive Medicine|xlegislation & jurisprudence. 650 22 Jurisprudence. 650 22 Pregnancy. 650 22 Pregnant Women. 650 22 Reproductive Techniques|xlegislation & jurisprudence. 700 1 Savell, Kristin,|d1968- 830 0 Cambridge disability, law and policy series. 910 nsg 201209
