Dr Kate Greasley discusses her book Arguments about Abortion: Personhood, Morality and Law

Thursday 18 May 2017

Dr Kate Greasley, Lecturer in Law at UCL Faculty of Laws, discussed her book Arguments about Abortion: Personhood, Morality and Law alongside Professor Carol Sanger, the Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, on 17 May 2017 at UCL Roberts Building.

Dr Anna Donovan, Vice Dean (Enterprise and Innovation), Lecturer in Law at UCL Laws and co-director of UCL Centre for Ethics and Law chaired the event.

Both authors examined the central ideas of their respective books. Dr Greasley’s book focuses on the moral and legal permissibility of terminating pregnancy, and the relevance of arguments about foetal personhood for that question.

Professor Sangers’ book About Abortion: Terminating Pregnancy in Twenty-First Century America confronts the question of why so much of United States politics and society is concerned with the abortion issue.
