paper comes out in IJFAB

My paper, “Reconciling the Disability Critique and Reproductive Liberty: The Case of Negative Genetic Selection,” came out this month in the International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics. Available here.

In it, I investigate the difficult tangle of questions over the assertion that one has a moral responsibility to choose one’s children (in particular, to choose against an “impaired” fetus with a marker for disability). I argue that although philosophers of disability and disability activists concerned about the practice of negative genetic selection are often accused of seeking to limit women’s choices with regard to pregnancy, this is unfair accusation and points to deeper problems in how we look at reproductive technology.
