In reproductive health (RH), commonlaw is instructive with respect to which arguments have not been advanced. RH law is a broader concept than the abortion rights, contraceptive access, procreative liberty, freedom of sexual expression, or patenting an invention. Featuring 62 multiple-choice questions at varying levels of difficulty, as well as 12 essay questions to give you practice issue-spotting and analyzing the law, this book covers various conflicts and tests in RH: constitutional law (freedom of expression, abortion rights, fetal viability, gender equality, advance directives, standing, constitutionality of several statutes), criminal law (indictment or arrest of a pregnant woman, maternal-fetal conflicts, fetal custody), contracts (arrangements under the Stark law, business associations, surrogacy contract), and intellectual property (patenting a matter of natural origin, trademarks and unfair competition, infringement, dilution, cybersquatting, and tarnishment disputes). The Law of Torts and the Law of the Patient Care (in the context of RH) are left for the upcoming serial. However, the current effort also covers malpractice suits.
