Seven Ways of Looking at Frankenstein

2018 is the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein, arguably the first sustained work of bioethics in literature. We will consider a few of the many ways in which the novel has come to influence the way we think about, and fear and desire, medical science and biotechnology.

Her Body, Our Laws:
On the Front Lines of the Abortion War from El Salvador to Oklahoma

In 1998, El Salvador passed a law banning abortion under all circumstances. Since then, El Salvador has mounted an intensive effort to identify and prosecute those who violate the law. This talk will discuss the ban’s consequences, namely: (1) abortion remained commonplace and rates did not drop even though it was illegal; (2) doctors become involved in law enforcement; and (3) innocent women were accused and convicted of abortion-related crimes. In addition, this talk will explain why, in spite of the vast differences between El Salvador and the United States, there is good reason to expect that the United States would experience each of these consequences were it to outlaw abortion.
