Surrogacy has Something to Offend Everyone

Last edited 22nd June 2016

Reducing the private realm: Surrogacy drags the law into baby-making, an arena that ordinarily takes place in the most private and intimate realm of love. Removing the sperm and egg from the body places those gametes in the realm of commerce and law. Surrogacy may involve as many as 5 separate individuals: egg donor, sperm donor, gestational carrier and one or more “commissioning parents.” The law must decide which of the adults shall be the legal parents of the child. In natural conception, the law’s role is strictly limited to recording the natural parents of the child.

Indian Women Turning to Female Only Transport to Stay Safe

Last edited 19th June 2016

Madhu Kushwah is calmly negotiating her way through Delhi’s chaotic traffic, ignoring the relentless honking of horns and apparently unfazed by the cars and auto rickshaws that keep veering dangerously across the road in front of her. Ms Kushwah seems to be one of the few drivers to have read, and heeded, the street signs urging motorists to “Follow Lane Discipline.” The 27-year-old is dressed in her work uniform, a blue shalwar kameez with pink trimming, and driving a white sedan that’s seen better days. As a female taxi driver, Ms Kushwah is a very rare breed in India. She is an employee of Sakha cabs – the pink and purple sticker on the driver’s door says: “Cabs for Women By Women”.

The Little Sisters of the Poor Just Beat the Obama Administration at the Supreme Court

Last edited 17th May 2016

While the consensus view seems to be that the Supreme Court “punted” today by sending the Little Sisters of the Poor case back to the lower courts, I must respectfully dissent. Although the Court didn’t rule on the merits of the case, the Little Sisters won a significant victory — one that is likely (though not yet certain) to persist through the next administration.
