With our spring issue and supplement currently being mailed to our members, we are well underway with our summer issue: “Intersections in Reproduction: Perspectives on Abortion and Assisted Reproductive Technologies.” ASLME former president Judith Daar and her co-guest editor Kimberly Mutcherson guide us through the many controversies that these topics seem to evoke. She and her co-authors carefully examine the medical, legal, and ethical discourse that shape women’s health policies, such as sex selection, surrogacy, stigma, gender stereotypes, disclosure mandates, and fertility regulation. This symposium maintains a different type of format: here each article is followed by a commentary that furthers the discussion made in the original. Thus, we have two articles exploring one particular topic. As a whole, this symposium examines issues that affect American women and their health, laws, and society at large. We are looking forward to publishing this symposium—the first of its kind for us.
As always, we thank you for your readership of and interest in JLME! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions, concerns, or suggestions.
