Our Symposium is titled Issues of Reproductive Rights: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Policy.” The selection of this Symposium topic was a result of major developments in the area of Reproductive Rights in the past year. For example, state legislation in Texas, Ohio, or Arkansas severely restricting women’s access to abortion. Another example would be the recent 10th Circuit decision inHobby Lobby v. Sebelius which provided for-profit corporations with a right to challenge the Affordable Care Acts so-called contraceptive mandate on the basis that a corporation is a person who can have and exercise its own religious beliefs. The Symposium aims to give judges, legislators, and academics the opportunity to present research that highlights the legal and ethical issues that may occur because of these developments.
