Quarantine And The Federal Role In Epidemics, Michael R. Ulrich, Wendy K. Mariner 2018 Boston University School of Public Health

Quarantine And The Federal Role In Epidemics, Michael R. Ulrich, Wendy K. Mariner

SMU Law Review

Every recent presidential administration has faced an infectious disease threat, and this trend is certain to continue. The states have primary responsibility for protecting the public’s health under their police powers, but modern travel makes diseases almost impossible to contain intrastate. How should the federal government respond in the future? The Ebola scare in the U.S. repeated a typical response—demands for quarantine. In January 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued final regulations on its authority to issue Federal Quarantine Orders. These regulations rely heavily on confining ...


Two & A Half Parents: Three-Parent Ivf And Medical Malpractice In The United States, Jay M. Fulk 2018 Concordia University School of Law

Two & A Half Parents: Three-Parent Ivf And Medical Malpractice In The United States, Jay M. Fulk

Concordia Law Review

Fertility medicine is seeing a rapid advancement with the emergence of a new procedure called three-parent in vitro fertilization (IVF). This novel procedure provides an opportunity for women who have defective mitochondria to bear their own healthy genetic children. As women encounter fertility issues, they will often turn to regular IVF by receiving an egg from a donor—ultimately resulting in a child with no genetic relation to the mother. Women with defective mitochondria will likely pass down a mitochondrial disease to their children, therefore, bearing a child without the assistance from a donor does not present a viable option ...

Emerging Governance Of Mitochondrial Replacement Therapy: Assessing Coherence Between Scientific Evidence And Policy Outcomes, Katherine Drabiak

DePaul Journal of Health Care Law

In the fall of 2016, media headlines reported news of several births of children born through “three parent IVF” or mitochondrial replacement therapy (MRT). MRT refers to an experimental procedure that entails removing the nuclear DNA from the mother’s egg or fertilized zygote and transferring it to a donor’s egg or fertilized zygote. This procedure constitutes a modification of the human germline, which has been prohibited by numerous declarations, directives, and laws promulgated by the United Nations, the Council of Europe, and other nations. In 2016, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in the United Kingdom was the ...

Judith Jarvis Thomson On Abortion; A Libertarian Perspective, Walter E. Block 2018 Loyola University New Orleans

Judith Jarvis Thomson On Abortion; A Libertarian Perspective, Walter E. Block

DePaul Journal of Health Care Law

Introduction:

Judith Jarvis Thompson, an eminent philosopher from MIT, has written the most widely cited article of all those ever written about abortion. She likens the fetus to a trespasser. Suppose you wake up in bed next to a famous violinist who is (innocently) connected to your kidney, through a sort of umbilical cord, without which he will die. What rights does he have? What obligations do you have? Using this brilliant analogy to pregnancy, she sheds light on the abortion controversy.

Method:

The method used in the present paper is to widely quote Thompson’s (1971) essay, and then ...
